P6-Loader has the ability to transfer global, project and user filters, layouts, global changes and reports from one database to another while maintaining the integrity.
Keep your databases tidy with usage sheets that identify what project is using what piece of global data. In this example, projects that are using each calendar are easily identified. A Usage Sheet can be run for UDFs, Activity Codes, Calendars, Resources and Roles.
Create backup files with daily and/or monthly frequency from P6-Loader. Projects can be selected based on their status.
Export files to the P6-Loader Excel format and P6 XML (or both) formats on a Daily, Weekly or Monthly basis and choose if/what baselines you want to include.
With automation turned on for a given database, a full export of the database's global data is performed every day and/or week. It includes EPS, OBS, resources, roles, users, dictionaries, UDFs, etc.
Export files to the P6 XML format.
Download the project and global files for a database at a given point in time. This makes recovering lost data and administering the database much easier.

Oracle Primavera P6® is a state of the art enterprise project portfolio management (EPPM) system designed to allow worldwide project teams to collaborate for the best project results. Giving your team access to load all of the necessary data into the system may not always be possible, and even when it is, the data entry process can be frustrating and time-consuming.
The Emerald P6-Loader is a flexible and secure solution that automates Primavera P6 data extraction, loading and updating. The P6-Loader gives project users and administrators the ability to import and export nearly every data element available in P6, allowing for the movement of data back and forth between Primavera P6 and Microsoft Excel in a controlled manner.
The P6-Loader can create and update data in the Primavera database and allow users to manipulate data at both the project level and global level. With the P6-Loader, you can literally create an entire database in minutes. As a result, the P6-Loader goes above and beyond Primavera P6’s built-in Excel import & export functionality. The functionality in P6 is limited to the manipulation of 5 data elements and restricted to project level data that can only be moved one project at a time. P6-Loader includes activities, resource assignments, the resource dictionary, calendars and more.
Emerald’s P6-Loader, developed by our team of Primavera specialists, can significantly accelerate Primavera P6 implementations, monthly statusing from multiple Primavera P6 systems, clean-up efforts and project updates. The user-friendly nature of the P6-Loader solution means that it can be used by any user without requiring database administrator knowledge or security privileges.
