The key thing in the College game is making sure that the Output Draft files option is set to Yes. The draft file will be created when you hit the end season button. Draft files will be stored in the draftfiles folder inside the main folder for your save.

The goal is to make the import process automatic once you have the proper settings. The pro game will look in the save folder from the college game and use the appropriate draft file every season when it creates the draft pool during the training camps phase. You'll want to set the Source to FBCB Import and set the FBCB Import League to the FBCB league you want to import from. The import season dropdown is where you'll have a choice. It will display the following options : Current Season, No files remaining, plus any draft files it finds. When you set it to current season, it will attempt to automatically import the draft file that matches the current season the pro game is in from the FBCB leagues save folder each year. If you choose a specific draft file from the list, then each year the game will import the next draft file in the list until it runs out of draft files. At that point the drop down will switch to no files remaining.

In order to run the leagues side by side using the same season, manual import will work much better for you. What you do is copy the FBCB draft file over to the draft files folder. You can locate this folder by going to Draft Files under the tools menu and choosing "Open Folder". Then go to the Current League Editor and set the dropdown to Draft Pool and select your league. Then press import and the game will display the list of draft files to choose from.
