Imported XER Has Different WBS Hierarchy Order Than Original Schedule.

(Doc ID 2074370.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Professional Project Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When importing/exporting an XER, the imported XER does not have the same WBS hierarchy order as the original Project. Note, this has also been seen when performing a project copy/paste.

Expect hierarchy order to remain intact.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Log into P6 Pro | Projects view.
2. Export Project to XER.
3. Import Project back into database with default options.
4. Compare WBS hierarchy in source and imported schedules. WBS hierarchy will be different.
