Hi,

there are multple ways to bridge to P6 Version 8:

1 If you are only interested in task: Prepare Primavera Gantt Text Panel with all information (columns) you need in TILOS, copy that to the clipboard: Use TILOS asc import from clipboard to import data into TILOS.

Map one column with your TILOS template to set automatic color, shape and lines styles based on P6 information.

2 Use TILOS - Primavera data exchange module, for this you need Primavera API running. This allows exchange of task, links, calendars and resource information. This generates XML, that TILOS can read.

The P6 XML export can not be directly import to TILOS. Wrong xml structure.

Good luck
