If the Master Match dialogue has been displayed via the Bulk Match menu option the initial dialogue allows you to select the type of match being performed.
The bulk match dialogue shows details of the player to be matched with other players on the Master list and/or players from the ECF Grading or FIDE Rating Lists that are held on the system.
The dialogue is split into three sections. The left hand side display a summary of the player to be merged to. Initially the middle section displays a list of players from the local, ECF and FIDE lists that match on Surname and first character of the First Name. The third section displays a summary of the selected player from the list of potential matches.
The middle section of the dialogue allows you to search for players and select a player. They are listed with the most likely potential matches at the top of the list. When a player is selected their details are displayed on the right hand side of the dialogue. Fields that exactly match are displayed with a green marker, close matches are shown by a yellow marker and complete mismatches are displayed with a red marker against the field.

Bulk Match can be used to match new players that have been entered on the system as once Bulk Match has been run once, only new players will be displayed for matching.
