    Another great article Mimoune.

    Just a word of caution with cell-size limitations of Excel when importing Calendar information that have many Exception dates. Excel will truncate the cell contents at 32,767 characters so you may not notice that you’ve lost some of your exceptions when you save the XER out through the Parser.

    Thanks John,

    we will update the post with your note.
    There is a good reason that oracle doesn’t support this utility :) I hope readers will use it with caution.

    Hi Mimoune,

    Something off the topic. Do you know a book or video series that will show how to build a project from scratch on excel till it is fully loaded in Primavera. I am learning about it but getting picks and pieces around is taking a lot of time. I am not finding it very helpful to read the explanation of every function in Primavera without applying it in an example. Please give me any tips that you find it useful for the best way to start to become an expert in it. I have the Ref manual and I have a series in Arabic that show how to load a project into Primavera but I think the guy made a mistake not sure though. Instead of creating WBS for the tasks he imported all the activities and WBS to Primavera as activities then he coded them with activities coding so they are activities in Primavera but treated them as WBS by coding and sorting activities under them. I am trying to be professional so that is why I am trying to find a better way to learn it is for free so surely I cant complain. Thank you.

    These files do not work for Excel 2010 or 2013?
