Question 1:

In Gmail / Google Contacts, let's say I have 12 contacts in Group A and 8 contacts in Group B.

4 contacts are in both Group A and Group B.

Is there a way I can filter to get results of only the contacts that are in both Groups?

(in this example there would be 4 contacts in the results)

Question 2:

Again, let's say I have 12 contacts in Group A and 8 contacts in Group B.

4 contacts are in both Group A and Group B.

Can I filter to get only the contacts that are in Group A and Not in Group B?

(in this example there would be 8 contacts in the results)

Unfortunately, this just doesn't seem possible. I can't even work out a kludgey way to do either. –  Al E. Sep 23 '11 at 17:10
    
Or if there's some software that integrates with Google Contacts, I'm interested... –  Richard Sep 23 '11 at 19:31
    
Even selecting one group and scrolling for the other doesn't work very well because some of my contacts are members of lots of groups, so the group names shorten so I can't see them properly. Plus it's pretty time consuming, especially if I have a few filters to apply. –  Richard Sep 23 '11 at 19:38

This worked for me: Select group 1, select all, assign a new group call "A and B" do the same for group 2. Now they are all in group "A and B"

Isn't that just going to result in all the members of Group A and Group B ending up in the new group? The OP wants the opposite. –  Al E. Mar 20 '12 at 19:00
