XER File Transfer

If you are sent an XER file that has a different
sequencial number how can you update an existing project
?

IE: My project is saved as K000-1
and the contractor has sent me an updated version but it
is saved as K000-4. When you import the file it does not
give you the dropdown option of "update existing". <br
/>Manually changing the file name does not solve the
issue.

Any information appreciated.

    Do you have K000-1 open before you try the xer
    import?

    If you have K000-1 open
    and try to import a schedule with a different project
    number you should still get the drop down list to
    either "add into", "create new", ignore, replace, or
    update. After selecting the appropriate function you
    will then need to click on the elipsis under the
    "import to" column to tell it what schedule to update.

    Hello,

    This previos poster was
    correct. Make sure you have the project open. You will
    then be able to select update existing and choose the
    project you would like to update.
