Primavera Project Management

NetPoint features importing and exporting with Primavera P6. This is done by first exporting an .XER file from one application and then importing it into the other. NetPoint can write XER files versions 6.2.1, 7.0, 8.1, 8.2, and 8.3 and read XER files versions 6 and onward.

Primary information such as activities, logic, grid position, and assignments are all transferred, while some formatting characteristics such as link geometries, shades, page size, and canvas color are not. For a full list of supported fields, see the notes at the end of the following sections.

If you’re importing/exporting “round-trip”, pay special attention to the notes in bold. A “round-trip” has occurred if the same schedule ends up back in the application it originated in, e.g. NetPoint -> P6 -> NetPoint or P6 -> NetPoint -> P6.

This section details instructions for the following:

  1. Importing from P6
  2. Exporting to P6
