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.

Dear All P6 Experts,

I have my current schedule and I already assigned Basline to it. I try to export my current schedule as XER file and send it by e-mail but the person who import it to his computer he can't see my assigned baseline? Is there method I can send them in correct way at the same time in one XER file?


Thank you all,

its alwasy a good practice to copy the original baseline schedule for this exact purpose becasue once you assign it to another schedule it gets hidden.

as Tony said restore the baseline open both projects together then export

In the maintain baselines click restore to unlink the baseline, open both and export XER, the other person just needs to assign the baseline to the main project. then later on for updates you´d only need to send the main project and import it as updating.
