hsbspla are the Hamburg software BeiSPielLohnAbrechnungsdaten, i.e. the demo database.
"The other" databases, e.g. LOHN are the real databases.
On the TARGET computer, go to File/Catalog/Create.

Data source name: HSLALOHN (the file name of the payroll database without extension, preceded by HSLA (HamburgerDoftwareLohnAbrechnung). Thus, HSLA +wage.db becomes HSLALOHN

Description: Any comment

Operating mode: In most cases probably single user. If you use HS-Lohn in multi-user mode (on different PCs!), then client-server.

Then Apply, Connection test, Save. For the connection test you already need a valid password of the payroll database.
