I have my addressbook in a speadsheet, and I want to import it into a database, but cannot figure out how, I'm thinking it must be possible.

There's a wizard to do this, but it's not obvious how to get to it. .
1. Select and copy the data in the spreadsheet (including column headings and all data)
2. When you've created a new empty database, select tables using the icon at top left, right-click in the tables area and select 'Paste'.
3. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
