I am trying to export the entire cost account ID into excel. It appears as if primavera only takes the end value of the ID. So if I have a cost acount ID 00A.01 it will only export 01. Is there any way around this?

you can try report. 

* create a "activity resource and role assignments" report to include the cost account column

* run the report and save to an ASCII Text File

* import the file into Excel

Yes. The cost account ID only exports the end value so 316.0.10.4 will only export .4 I dont know how to format the cost account ID to get a successful re-import. I am exporting to excel.

I have a few versions of P6 on different machines, but none as old as 7.0

I would advise downloading an evaluation of version 18 PPM, and checking it with an import of your project.

I checked the admin preferences and both items you specified were set to the maximum. Also, I am using version 7.0.
