How do I change the game number of a game in a PGN database using HIARCS Chess Explorer. E.g. I want to change the number of a game from 9 to 15 hence changing it's game number, hence also the order of the games in the database.

Hi,
I think you can't change the database order with HCE.

But you can edit your database with a text editor (Word for exemple) :
1 - duplicate your database xxx.pgn and rename your copy xxx2.pgn to xxx2.txt.
2 - open xxx2.txt with your text editor.
3 - select the game, cut it and paste it where you want.
4 - save as txt format (and not in native editor format)
5 - rename as xxx2.pgn ant verify

Regards
