Is there some application that transforms the handviewer page into a pbn file?
For example this:

This is what I do:

1. I copy the URL into a spreadsheet in A1.

2. I strip every up to an including "lin=". In A2 use this formula: =right(a1,len(a)-find("lin=",a1)-3)

3. I replace %20 with a space. In A3 use this formula: =substitute(b1,"%20"," ")

4. I then copy the hands into a text file and save as hands.lin

5. I then use Bridge Composer but there are other lin to pbn converters to create a pbn file.

Steps 2 and 3 could be combined into a single forumala =substitute(right(a1,len(a)-find("lin=",a1)-3),"%20"," ").

I have written spreadsheet code previously to convert things like this URL into pbn but I don't think I have anything that does the entire conversion. I have only done things like extract part of the information - maybe the hands and dealer and vul but not the card play.

You could try
http://www.himbuv.co.../english/lin_en

Basically what you are asking is a converter content of a lin file to a pbn file.

there is an old program by Richard Pavlice

But this is just one opton, on the forum other methods are mentioned.
With kind regards

The bridgesolver add on for Chrome will read a handviewer diagram in the current page and can save to file in pbn format - I don't remember if that extends to all details including explanations and sequence of play.
