Microsoft Project 2007 can now be imported and exported using only XML format except when Importing Summary Projects and Resource only Projects. ProjectLink is not supported nor is Importing of MPP files.

Microsoft Project 2007 or later no longer needs to be installed on the same machine as (P6 v6.2, P6 v6.2.1, P6 v7) in order to import MSP XML files.

Important Note: "Update Existing" is a new option in 8.2 when importing MSP XML files using the P6 client. During the import process using "Update Existing", P6 will match the "MSP Activity ID" User Defined Field (NOT the Activity ID) in P6 with the ID field in the imported file to determine if the activity is a new or existing activity.

Microsoft Project 2007 and Microsoft Project 2010 files can now be imported and exported using only XML format except when Importing Summary Projects and Resource only Projects. ProjectLink is not supported nor is Importing of MPP files.

Microsoft Project 2007 or later no longer needs to be installed on the same machine in order to import MSP XML files.
