Data mappings for P6 Professional and Microsoft Project (MSP

)
The following tables describe the data exchange mapping between P6 Professional and Microsoft Project. Although the data mapping between both products is as close as possible for the purpose of import/export, P6 Professional was not designed to be another Microsoft Project. Therefore, some information may be lost when importing and exporting. Important! Due to slight variations in how P6 Professional and Microsoft Project calculate units and costs, values for units and costs may not be identical when exchanging data between P6 Professional and Microsoft Project. Note: Refer to P6 Professional Help or reference manual for Microsoft Project import/export considerations.
