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 Rohini

What is the reason you are wanting to change an MPX file to an MPP file?

Ive only ever wanted to do that if I am trying to import a primavera file into Microsoft Project.

If thats the case there is an easier way to do it now using XerTransfer.  You can import and XER file directly into microsoft Project and export and XER file directly from microsoft project.  Check out the link below you can get a trial version that has full functionality.

XerTransfer – a product of XerSolutions
