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.

got a friend who wants to convert a microsoft schedule into a P3 schedule. (don’t know what version of either program he has). I tried checking the primavera website but no luck. is there a relatively easy way to do this or just start over in P3?

Hi Zoltan,

I'm battling to download the file.

Please could you share your email address and I'll send you the MSP MPP file.

My email address juanva5808@gmail.com or juan.van-aswegen@poyry.com

Thank you,

Juan

I did not got any problem using this convertor...

Are you getting this error message for any project you want to convert or just for one particular project?

In any case verify the followings:

1) the project must be closed when performing the conversion

2) you have the rights to read and write on the project and in the destination folder

Pranab,
either download the converter from www.sciforma.com, it works better than the Primavera’s
or have a look at Paul E.Harris site and follow his instructions

Well done, but how to get a MPX file?
As Project has stopped any support and development around MPX (MS Project Exchange) format since 1995, the only way to save a MPP file to MPX format is to use either Primavera Corp or Sciforma (www.sciforma.com) file converter; to use Sciforma file converter, you have to have MS project installed on your PC
You can visit Paul E.Harris website for more details

Convert a Microsoft Project to P3

1 Choose Tools, MPX Conversion Utility.
2 Click the MPX icon in the toolbar of the utility program window, or choose File, Convert an MPX Project to a P3 Project.

3 Enter the name of the Microsoft project to convert in the Project Name field or use the Folders/Drive fields to select it.

The name, number/version, and title of the selected project is displayed. You can also click Overview to review or verify more information about the project
before you convert it.
4 Click OK. In the Convert Project To dialog box, specify a new name for the converted project.
5 Click OK.
