Converting from MSP to P^ (or Vice Versa) is a pain, use the tool suggested by Zoltan, the time and effort it saves will pay for itself.

Hello Nathan,

I have just tried another time to make sure I will not say something wrong;

when you save the ms project as an xml file, the relationships are well included in the xml file, and then well imported and displayed in P6

as far as activity codes are concerned, edit the import model in the P6 import-an-xml-file dialog box, go to the last tab on the right Custom fields, and set up te custom (mapped) fields as necessary
