Symptoms

When a Microsoft Project (MSP) XML schedule is imported into P6, the WBS Codes that are created are excessively long, concatenated WBS Codes.

For example, during P6 MSP XML import if a WBS is on a the 4th level with a value of "1.5.1.1", the resulting concatenated WBS Code in P6 is "1.1.5.1.5.1.1.5.1.1", which is a concatenation of WBS Level 4 (1.5.1.1), 3 (1.5.1), 2 (1.5), and 1 (1), for a total of 10 digits (1 + 1.5 + 1.5.1 + 1.5.1.1) OR (1.1.5.1.5.1.1.5.1.1).
