Almost all data is exported when creating an XER.  There are no export options.  There are import options, however.  In the Update Project Options screen of the import XER operation, click on the Modify option button and review what you have selected to import.

The only other possibility is that your P6 User ID is not authorized to import the missing data.  Check with your P6 System Administrator to confirm that you have the necessary authorizations.  Good luck!

Hi Evren,

Importing should bring all these values in automatically,  see if you can get another copy of you XER file and try again.  (It may be a corrupt file)

 

Regards

Neil
