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.

Hello Pplanners,

I recently tried to import a XER file into P6 15.2, and I received the following warning/error message "This file contains resource data, import canceled"

Does anybody know the reason of this message, that I saw for the first time?

Thank you,

Alexandre

I know of a bug using an xml import but not an xer 

this has to do with the way that the fininacial periods are set up 

This issue has been resolved and the fix has been included as part of the following patch sets:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (P6 EPPM) Version 16.2 Patch Set 5 (Doc ID 2239328.1)
