Hi all!
I am having problem in importing a MSP schedule into Primavera Ver.5.
I have imported the file but as soon as I schedule it in Ver.5 the dates change.Also all the activities that were task dependent in MSP have become resource dependent after importing in Ver.5.
Before importing I selected all the activities and removed "Effort driven". I cleared the baseline too.

Regards,
Suraj

I understand that it is a default of Primavera - import activities as resource dependent - I never knew a place where I could configure this.
I dont know if it’s diferent in P5, maybe some other PP member could tel us.
By the way it is easy to change this using fill down.

Regards.

Suraj Bhatt;

Too many things can be causing this problem.

Calendars, lags, relathionships, durations etc.

I suggest u to check all this topics in all activities and try to find what is wrong.

Good luck.
