Default Exporting a limited contacts .csv file

Is there any way to export a contacts .csv file that includes only those
contacts within a particular address group?

Perhaps you can use this workaround for exporting a group.

Create a "standalone" WAB file:
http://insideoe.tomsterdam.com/files/wab.htm#wabexe

Then open your default address book to the group desired and select all
member of the group and copy them to the clipboard (Ctrl+A selects all,
Ctrl+C copies them to the clipboard). Then open your "standalone" WAB file
and paste the contacts into that file (you will have to hit the Enter key to
OK each entry but it beats typing) and then either copy that wab file to a
floppy disc or export it as CSV file. Otherwise, folders and groups neither
import, nor export.

Bruce, thanks, but must confess my head hurts after reading your workaround.
I think I'll just export the whole address list, then delete the ones I don't
want [to export to Facebook] from within Excel.
