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.

The Save As dialog appears. Primavera software except Primavera P3 does not support hammock tasks.
Converting ASTA power Project File to P3
Currency units Primavera software does not offer the same level of multi-currency support as Asta Powerproject. 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.
HTML special characters are imported as follows: Any name clashes with existing objects are resolved by renaming the newly imported objects a number in parentheses is added to their names.
Click Finish to close the wizard and export the project. Cost and income rates Resource cost rates are calculated differently in Microsoft Project. In Primavera software, there is a Duration type field on each task that defines the calculation type for all of the task’s resource allocations. Fixed costs have an accrual type in Primavera software. A number of custom fields relating to code libraries that have been created during export are illustrated below:.
Asta Powerproject can export to and import from two different Microsoft Project-compatible file formats:.
Exporting projects to Microsoft Project
You can specify whether tasks that do not have any incoming links are given a start flag during the export process. You can choose to calculate the following earned value fields using the budget cost of allocations rather than using a value from a baseline: Tasks in Primavera software have a Priority field that is used to control resource levelling.
Links in Primavera SureTrak have a single lag value, which is always calculated according to the calendar of the activity at the start of the link. These are tasks which are separate from the WBS items, but which are kept in step with them with the Primavera software Schedule command. The results of rescheduling in Asta Powerproject will be the same as in Primavera SureTrak, provided that you configure Primavera SureTrak to treat ‘open ends’ as non-critical.
If you import an MPP or XML file into a chart or summary group rather than importing it as a project in its own right, a number of Library Explorer objects such as calendars, cost centres, cost and income rates and resources may be created as a result of the import.
Primavera software has separate hierarchies of resources and skills also known as roles. Primavera P3 does not support the use of long file or path names, or those containing spaces, so ensure that the file and folder names you use when exporting to P3B format are a maximum of eight characters in length and do not contain spaces.
It is possible that a project in Asta Powerproject may contain tasks with durations longer than this. Fixed costs Pkwerproject in Primavera software have an additional field that does not exist in Asta Powerproject, representing the expenses category. Microsoft Project does not support interruptible tasks.
Thanks Mike I got it. Primavera software does not support boolean user-defined fields, so these are exported as string-type user-defined fields containing either ‘Y’ or ‘N’. The default currency unit that is defined in the XER file is used to set up the common currency in Asta Powerproject.
Scheduling In Primavera SureTrak, activities with no successor known as ‘open ends’ can be defined to be critical or non-critical. Currency powrrproject Primavera P3 does not support currency units in any way.
This is set to ‘Top’ if a task’s levelling priority is more than zero in Asta Powerproject, and ‘normal’ otherwise. Resources Tto in Primavera SureTrak are not categorised as ‘permanent’, ‘consumable’ or ‘cost’, so you need to specify which units of measurement are used for permanent resources and costs to enable Asta Powerproject to divide the resources appropriately during the import process any resources that use a unit of measurement that you do not specify are imported as consumable resources.
How to import an ‘ASTA Power Project’ schedule – Sablono Support
When you use a planning unit of Hours, Primavera P3 only supports a single powerproiect time and end time for each day, which means that Asta Powerproject’s morning and afternoon working periods cannot be directly translated during the export process.
Total cost variance percent. Task user-defined fields in Asta Powerproject map to activity custom data in Primavera P3, while permanent and consumable scheduled allocation user-defined tp map to resource custom data. On export, this field is derived from the Calculated parameter of the first allocation on each task.
Code libraries If a project in which code library entries have been assigned to tasks and resources has been exported to Microsoft Project, the hierarchy of codes is recreated if the file is imported back into Asta Powerproject as a project in its own right. 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.
Cost centres The ‘cost account’ object in Primavera software is the equivalent of Asta Powerproject cost centres.
