Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi Mike,

I am trying to save file as XER to import it to P6 but got the attached error/warnings.

Please advise me the steps to follow so I can save file as Full as it is without the above warnings and import the whole programme into P6 with same headings and subheadings as in Asta without any error.

Cheers

Hi Mike

Slight variation to this question, I receive files from Asta Power Project saved as an XER file which will import to the Standalone Desktop P6 (SQL lite), but fail when importing to the SQL Network databases.

 

Is there a specific method for Asta users to creat an XER file and have you encountered the issue before?
