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,

When I exported project from p3,the resource type that assigned to the resources in P6 are not satisfactory,so I'd like to change the type of resources.

Is it possible by exporting to excel.

Hi Ayman,

P3 does not knwo what a resource type is; therefore all your resources coming from a P3 project should be "labor"

if you have access to the resource sheet in P6 (you maybe should have admin rights to do so), it is easy to change the resource type, at least between "labor" and "nonlabor"; going to "material " is less easy
