Authorized Oracle Primavera, Asta Powerproject and PMWeb Software Sales. • Experienced . Turn Asta “Flags” into Start. Constraints in P6. Hi to All, I am trying to export ASTA PP files to P3 using export option on Asta. But I am getting the error ” Invalid work Pattern position”. First you need to export your project from ASTA Power Project to a Microsoft Project XML-file. To do so please select “File” in the top left corner.

If this is the case, additional milestones are added to conveet start or finish of summary groups as required upon export, to act as ‘start’ and ‘finish’ tasks to which the links can be moved. Variable dates Primavera P3 does not support the concept of variable datesso any variable dates within a project are converted into fixed dates powerproiect export, based on the date to which the variable date corresponds on the day of export.
You can choose whether or not to export resource and cost allocations. As a result of this, all currency amounts are converted into the Primavera P3 default currency during the export. Primavera software does not support links that start or finish at summary tasks; Asta Powerproject supports links that start or finish at the start of summary tasks, and links that start at the finish of summary tasks.
Any negative income in Asta Powerproject is exported as positive cost. Costs with a duration are marked as being uniformly accrued. Empty WBS items are imported as empty summary tasks, which are drawn at the report date.
Variable dates Primavera software does not support the concept of variable datesso any variable dates within a project are converted into fixed dates during export, based on the date to which the variable date corresponds on the day of export.
During the import process, these text within these fields is joined together and stored in the Notes field for each task.
How to import an ‘ASTA Power Project’ schedule – Sablono Support
Summary tasks Microsoft Project does not support empty summary tasks. Note that no additional constraint is applied to buffer tasks that have no incoming links as Microsoft Project does not support more than one constraint on a taskso unless there is a preceding task on the powerprojet bar, buffer tasks with no incoming links are moved to the project start date.
Primavera software only supports one task per bar, so where a bar has more than one task in Asta Powerproject it is divided into separate bars during the export, with a single task appearing on each; the tasks on these bars will be linked. You can choose to convert negative costs in the Microsoft Project file into income, or to leave them as negative costs in the resulting file.
Resources Primavera software has separate hierarchies of resources and skills also known as roles. This hierarchy is imported into Asta Powerproject as a hierarchy converrt summary tasks. All hammock tasks are lost during export.
The results of rescheduling in Asta Powerproject will be the same as in Pkwerproject SureTrak, provided that you configure Primavera SureTrak to treat ‘open ends’ as non-critical. In Primavera SureTrak, activities ti no successor known as ‘open ends’ can be defined to be critical or non-critical.
Asta Powerproject supports positive and negative costs, and positive and negative income. Primavera P3 does not support the concept of variable datesso any variable dates within a project are converted into fixed dates during export, based on the date to which the variable date corresponds on the day of export.
Exporting projects to Microsoft Project
Primavera software does not support work-based resource modelling information, so this information is lost upon export. Select the check boxes to the left of those code libraries that you want to include in the export and clear the check confert to the left of those that you want to exclude.
During import the notes are concatenated and any HTML tags are removed. If an alphanumeric character has been entered into the Path separator field on the Format tab of the Options dialog in Asta Powerproject, this is replaced by a period character during export. Overtime in Asta Powerproject is incompatible with Microsoft Project where progress is involved. The work breakdown structure underneath the single WBS root item in an Asta Powerproject project is therefore exported. You can then choose to import them all, or just a selection of them.
Any work breakdown structure items that correspond to projects are imported as expanded tasks that are flagged as being projects in Asta Powerproject.
Resource and cost allocation information from the Budgeted cost field in Asta Powerprojectt is exported into the Budgeted cost field cinvert Primavera software. User-defined fields User-defined fields are created according to the following table: The export creates whatever units of measurement are required to support the consumable resources that are being exported and places them in the units of measurement table.
For example, if a user-defined field exists for resources in Primavera software, a corresponding user-defined file is created for both permanent and consumable resources in Asta Powerproject.
Converting ASTA power Project File to P3
Primavera software does not offer the same level of multi-currency support as Asta Powerproject. As resources in Primavera software are uniquely identified using their short name, a numeric suffix is appended to the powerproect name if necessary during the export to guarantee uniqueness. Constraint flags Primavera software does not support Deadline constraints. The way to avoid this is to structure summary groups well prior to export.
