Pantone swatches labeled differently

So confused by the Pantone switchup that happened last fall. I have books for Pantone+ Coated and Pantone+ Uncoated. Those libraries are loaded into my Adobe software, but the swatch numbers are completely different now. The Adobe libraries are all called "Pantone P XXX-XX C, and they don't correlate to what's in the books (Pantone XXX U). How do I use this new system to find the swatches I need?

I think you see the only 2 pantone books that are installed in the recent versions, which are not the spot colors.

You may want to copy them from an older version.

It is easy to just install the 2022 version (while it is still available).  You don't even have to open it to copy the color books. After that you can deinstall that version.

In the Creative Cloud app select Apps > All Apps > Illustrator > click the 3 dots …  next to the Open button >  click Other Versions and select 26.5.2

Go the Illustrator 2022 Application folder > Presets > (your language folder) > Swatches > Color Books > and make a copy of PANTONE+ Solid Coated.acb and PANTONE+ Solid Uncoated.acb 

Keep them in a safe place and copy them to the same location in the Illustrator 2023 application folder.
