For Primavera P6 version 15.1 and later:

1. When Exporting a Project from Primavera P6 Professional (File, Export), select the 'Primavera P6 XML' format.



 The option to include Baselines in an XER Export is not available in Primavera P6 15.1.

2. To include a Baseline, click in the 'Baseline to Export' column.

For Primavera P6 8.4, you will need to follow this workaround to Export the live Project and Baseline Project separately:

e. Re-attach the Baseline Projects by opening the 'Live Project' and closing the 'Baseline Project'.

f. Go to Project, Maintain Baselines.

g. Click 'Add', and select 'Convert another Project to a new Baseline of the current Project'.

h. Select the the 'Baseline Project'. This will re-attach the Baseline to the live Project.

i. Go to Project, Assign Project Baselines. Re-assign the references to the Baseline.

a. Open the 'Live Project' and close the 'Baseline Project'.

b. Go to Project, Maintain Baselines.

c. Click 'Add', and select 'Convert another Project to a new Baseline of the current Project'.

d. Select the the 'Baseline Project'. This will attach the Baseline to the live Project.
