Hi All,

I am new to using p6 and i have a long list of resources in excel. And i am wondering if it is possible to import them in to the resource library in P6. This would save me having to creat them in one by one.

Hi Denis mc Carthy


since you are new I suggest you the following

1- use a tempory project for your experimentation

2- go the file menu and choose export  then you choose excel

3- study the created excel file

4- modifiy what you want in excel file with the same format ( add what you want with the same format)

5-go to file menu and choose export   then choose from excel






Resources in p6 is global for all projects. Importing will add/modify existing resources if any depending in setting. For more details go to help
