It looks as if you have part of an ACL taken from some other system.
It will not help you here, I suggest you remove it.

You need to provide 'write' access to the whole subtree under
so I suggest starting with this:

access to ou=addressbook,dc=Company,dc=com
	by users write
	by * read

access to *
	by * read

That will allow *any* authenticated user to do *anything* in your
addressbooks tree. You can then refine it, perhaps by limiting
which users can write:

access to ou=addressbook,dc=Company,dc=com
	by dn.subtree=ou=users,dc=Company,dc=com write
	by * read

access to *
	by * read
