Compatibility between OpenProj and Ms Project RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    We have received some OpenProj project files and want to convert the data into Ms Project format (I use Project 2010 Standard). OpenProj (version 1.4) from Serena is commonly in use in my professional surroundings. OpenProj can save the files in a 2003 Project XML format, so we download the open source software to save the files accordingly. When we open the XML files in Ms Project almost all dates are changed and erroneous. Even if tasks, predecessors, resource names and so on are correct, dates are not. Maybe the reason is that OpenProj operates with start- and finish dates also including time (hours), while Project doesn't.

    Does anybody have any advice on how to solve this? Is there perhaps any script or conversion module that can fix the problem?

  • Hello Gjermund,

    IMHO, this is an issue related to the compatibility of OpenProj with Project. I would kindly suggest you try posting on OpenProj forum in product website.
