Question about Primavera Business & Productivity Software

3 Answers

Primavera P6 I am newbie with Primavera P6. I am trying to find out if there is a way I can build a report that "replicate" most of the info we put in our weekly status report. What I would like to get is a list of activities (name, % completion, owner, start / end dates...) + the latest Notebook entry as "Status report" + list of open issues from the Issues tab that are associated to this activity. I believe this is what the dashboard is used for but I must confess that I am totally confused with the help online! Can you help me?

You can utilize your Primavera p6 information and export that info into an Excel spreadsheet which will then graphically represent that information per your reporting requirements.
You will need to do a couple "dry runs" to accomplish this, but the results will obviously make that time well spent.  If I can be of anymore assistance, please contact me.
By the way, the info you have adapted within your Excel spreadsheet can also be loaded into Access to further specify pure database info that will enable you to more accurately manage your data and informational input.

You can use the internal report writer within P6 to do most if not all of your reporting requirements. The only thing it fails miserably on is the ability to create good graphical reports.
You will need to have an excellent understanding of how to use the internal report writer, not the Report Wizard which is a GUI based tool to help you report.

Does primavera 3 works on win 8 ??


There are a lot of questions about this, without any answers! So I guess the answer is 'No'
It seems you would need to install both versions P6 and P3 on Win 8 then export P3 files to P6 to run, but even that isn't easy.

I can start my Primavera P6 with OS windows 7, I use P6 stand alone. database configuration said ''Bad public user name or...


The standalone DB Configuration seems simple but can be tricky When you configure the DB you have to use a Coded Username for the AdminSuperuser permissions "admprm$pm"! this user name makes your actual Log in username "Admin" you cannot use the admprm$pm at the Log in screen. Same with the Public User Permissions "pubprm$pm" gives read permissions but log in user name is "Public" Try the "Admin/Public" usernames if this does not work you may have to Uninstall and Reinstall. If you uninstall remember there are 2 peices of software to remove... P6 and the Oracle Database 10G

I just installed Primavera Project Management , and Methodology management. After logging in with the default username of admin and password of admin it comes back with the message " Unable to connect


You must connect to a database to utilize Primavera. You can not bypass this portion. So, Either remove the Database and reconfigure, or in the "Configure" Screen you can Name a new DB and use it. I would suggest that if you do not require 2 DB's not to have two. "The Oracle Database 10g" application that is installed with P6 (In your 'All Programs') will give you some DB manipulation options. Other wise refer to the TenSix link to clarify DB Config
