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.

I have just upgraded to P6.8.2 however our contractor is using P6.v7, when they send me an xer file and I import this I show only about a quarter of the resources that they have.  I have tried importing by insert new and also update resources but no difference.

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

do you have the rights to import the resources and have you checked insert new for the resource during the import process ?
