Why does a Project Exported In XML format Save as a Zip File?

(Doc ID 2294362.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 29, 2017

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Professional Project Management - Version 6.2 and later
Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - Version 6.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When Exporting a Project as XML format from P6 Client with the option 'Export Project Level Layouts' active, it saves as a ZIP file.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Open a Project.
2. Export as Primavera XML.
3. Export all Project Level Layouts - on.
4. It is defaulted to a zip(file type).

Same steps, but Export Project Level Layouts - off. An XML file is created.
