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,

Before going on holiday I exported a project as an XER to a network drive so a colleague could update whilst I was away.

I have returned today to find this was unable to be done as the exported XER file did not contain the Baseline!!!

Has anybody else experienced this? If so how did you get over it (apart from moving to a central database, which we are in the process of doing and will need to move locally stored projects from individuals machines to network when finalised!!)


One solution is to restore the baseline to a project, take a copy, reattach original baseline, export project and copy of baseline then re-attach. A bit cumberome but, as previously pointed out, P6 will allow you to export up to 3 baselines attached to your project.

That’s how it works in 5.0. Including baseline(s) in one step is an option in 6.0.
