While the pdf export module is pretty good, the facility to export to an Excel (or other format) spreadsheet would be very useful, for mailmerge operations, among other things.

    True, but I have no resources and need to do this.

    This is the class that manages the export of contacts:
    http://tab-2.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/tab-2/trunk/lib/backEnd/ContactImportExport.class.php?view=markup

    If someone could write a csvExport() function and post it as attachment here, then I could add the functionality.

    The question is how to select the export of multiple results ...
    1. best would be a search restult of the search page, but that is currently quite difficult.
    2. groupwise or all similiar to the main list.
