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.

Hi All,


Just wanted to know when we Export a Project will the Project Calendar also be exported with it. 


If not how can we export the Project calendar, either with the Project or Individually.

If you export to an XER file, the XER will contain any calendar that is being used by project, this includes:

  • Project Calendars assigned to activities
  • Global Calendars assigned to activities
  • Resource Calendars assigned to any resources
  • Global Calendars that are referenced by Project Calendars in the "Inherit from" option

Conversely, any project calendar or global calendar that is not assigned to an activity will not be included in the XER file.

There's no way to export calendars individually other than by creating them in an XER file.

whatever calendar are being used for the activites will be exported along with ethe project. I would recommend using project calendars instead of global calendars. 

Individual calendars can not be exported.
