Importing  Different Versions Primavera P6

As you are aware, Primavera P6 version 18.8 (now 19.2 is out) is the latest version as I was writing this in March 2019, but still, it is the latest one. Remember, Primavera P6 was released in August 2018 and hence expecting an update sooner or later as per the previous recent history.

Anyways, let see how easily you can deal with any versions as basics are the same. Some were upgraded as there was any bug like Primavera P6 versions 15.1, 15.2 and 16.1 & 16.2 were not supporting MS Excel import/export as per my experience.
