I create vcf files for all my clients. At times, I am required to include their Surname name \ DOB \ Phone number in the org document. Is their any way I can import the data directly from vcf file. ?

  • As it's a text file you can simply parse all the fields. What's the problem? Dec 31, 2017 at 12:24
  • I am not a programmer. I do not know how to parse

You can use this package to convert *.vcf into an *.org document. You can install it either by using package-install or by downloading this file and evaluating it manually with eval-buffer. Next run Mx org-vcard-import. You will be asked for Source:, just type file here and press Return. You will be asked for Destination, also type just file and press Return. Next thing you will be asked for is a path to an input .vcf file and finally you will be asked for a path to an output .org file. Output .org file will contain entries in the following format:

* Name LastName
:N: LastName;Name;;;
:EMAIL: [email protected]
:CELL: (xxx) xxx-xxx
