Transfer a local account?

Hello,

My young son has a local account on my 360.  I now have a One and wanted to know how to transfer his local 360 account to the One so he can keep his achievements/gamerscore.  It appears that the One only allows accounts tied to an email address.  I have no problem giving him an email address (that he doesn't know exists!) if necessary, but I don't see how that will allow him to keep his old progress and achievements from the 360.

Thanks!

I don't think you understand my question/problem.

On my 360 my son has a LOCAL account.  It is not on Xbox Live, so there is no "Account Management" option (it is greyed out).

When I setup the One it made me give my son an email address and charged me $1.50 for some strange reason.  He now has a new account on the One (with a gamertag assigned by Xbox) that has 0 gamerscore/achievements.  

I am asking how I can transfer his existing LOCAL 360 account to the One so he doesn't start all over at 0 gamerscore/achievements.

unfortunately you will not be able to transfer an non xbox live account to an xbox one. if you want to "transfer" you will need to have xbox live on your son's account.
