Symptoms

Scheduling/Leveling options are carried over when a project is exported to XER, but revert back to default options when imported back to the database with Import option set to Create New, Replace Existing or Add into Existing.

 

Note:  Choosing Update Existing imports the correct scheduling options

When exporting to XER, the scheduling/leveling options are correct when the file is opened but on importing back they revert to the default options

 

Note: The setting for 'Define Critical activities', because it is defined on the Settings Tab in the Project Details. Which then updates the Schedule Options setting

Note: This screen shot represents the Default Settings
