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 Everyone,

 

I am using  P6.18.8.0 version.

When I export it in XER format, the baseline is not been exported.

when I export in XML format again the baseline is not exported.

Any solution to this.

Thanks

Jithin

Hi Alex,

 

Ya its working. I exported a XML File and the baseline was in it.

Thanks for the tip.

Hi Jithin,

are you working stand-alone, or client-server? in this case, is it possible that you are not allowed to export baselines?

I am using P6 stand-alone with a SQLite database, and exporting/re-importing the baselines works perfectly with the XML format

Hi Alex,

 

I did export in XML Format, but again its not exporting the baseline.

 

And while exporting its asking if to include baseline and I have selected the baseline to be exported. But after exporting the and importing it to another machine I am not able to see the exported Baseline.

 

Is it a settings issue of Exporting Machine or Importing Machine ?

 

Thanks 

Jithin

Hi,

Santosh, it is possible to export baselines together with the current project in the xml export process; you may select the baseline you want to export

I guess this option exists since P6 17.x at the latest.

Baselines are not exported to those formats, you need to go MAINTAIN BASELINES>RESTORE BASELINES then export this restored project seperately. Remembe to then re-attach the baseline to the original project.
