Hi Judd,

I was exporting and importing from the same version ->

The Problem was/is that you can export to *.txt, but there is no radio 
button to choose *.txt as an import format. There the floating point 
error comes into the game...

The import of *.csv was awfull! After pointing on the *.csv file I was 
asked if I like to import this contact or all contacts - thats smart. 
Unfortunately eveen if I was pushing 'import all' the dialog came back...

The outcome of the import was not good. Last names haven't been in the 
appropriate field, sometimes there was a contact with nothing in and so on.

At the end I copied every detail end every contact by hand from the 
*.txt into jpilot.

jpilot itself started to run after I deleted (renamed) .jpilot in my 
home folder.

Only wimps study only the general case; real scientists pursue examples.
