You are right.. you have to delete summary activities as welll as changing the activity type that will be iported as Ressource type instead of activity type. calendars will have to be converted to your calendar since the MS calendar will be the one imported in your P6 database.

Hi Vineet,

Try importing it, it is not an exact conversion, but you can always delete the summary bars that you do not need.
