Making moves

Having tried exporting to a CSV file and importing that - failed miserably - I exported to vCards and tried importing them.  However Thunderbird imports them ONE AT A TIME!.  They suggest an upgarde add-on but this downloaded a file which I didn't know how to open.  The best idea was to open a Cmd window in the folder with all of the vcards and merge them by typing copy *.cvf merged.vcf.  If you try to view the merged file, you get a succession of vcard popup windows so hold the Esc key down until they come to an end.  Import the merged.vcf file using the import vcard option - it finishes with an error message but they will all have been imported perfectly.
