 +Also, you will need to use a new Player Database. ​ There are instructions below on how you can transfer the information ​relatively easily.\\ 
 +You can, however, still use any old user movement files.

 ==== Transferring your player database ==== ==== Transferring your player database ====
-Firstlyyou need to export ​your old player ​database from PairsScorer:​\\ + 
-Launch PairsScorer,​ click on '​Player Database',​ '​Player Management',​ and '​Export PD to csv file'​ +If your club uses Bridgewebsthen a quick and easy way to transfer ​your database ​is to... 
-{{:screenshot_export_pd.png?400|}}+  * "​export PD to Bridgewebs" ​from PairsScorer 
 +  * "​import PD from Bridgewebs"​ from EBUScore 
 +These two actions are done via buttons at the bottom left of the '​Player Management'​ screen, screenshot below, reached via the '​Player Database'​ button on the Main Menu, and the '​Player Management'​ tab at the top (circled). 
 + 
 +If you don't use Bridgewebs, you can do something similar via a '​csv'​ file rather than Bridgewebs: 
 +{{:​screenshot_export_pd.png?​400|}}\\ 
 +  ​* ​Launch PairsScorer,​ click on '​Player Database',​ '​Player Management',​ and '​Export PD to csv file', the button circled in the screenshot above.\\ (If you have a very old version of PairsScorer,​ the process might be different)\\ 
 +  * Confirm that you wish to export, and make a note of where the file is saved.\\ (The file will also be opened, in Notepad or Excel or similar - just close this!)\\ 
 +  * Close down PairsScorer,​ and Launch EBUScore Pairs.\\ 
 +  * Click on '​Player Database',​ '​Player Management',​ and '​**Import** PD from csv file'​\\ (as the screenshot above, but the button just above '​Export'​!)\\ 
 + 
 +Firstly you will be asked whether or not you wish to delete your existing database. ​ If you wish to retain Club '​player IDs' from your old database, then you will need to say '​Yes',​ even if there is nothing to delete!\\ 
 +If you do choose '​Yes',​ the '​deleted'​ database will be saved as a backup, and you see a prompt confirming this.  If you choose '​No',​ you will get a different prompt "PIDs in the imported file will be ignored"​. ​ Either way, just click '​OK'​.\\ 
 + 
 +Next you will need to navigate to find the '​csv'​ file that you have just saved - you did make a note, didn't you!  (It's probably in C:\PairsScorer\Reports)\\ 
 +Select the file PlayerDB.csv and click on '​Open'​. 
 + 
 +That should be it!
