What is an XER file?

An .XER file is a Primavera Exchange Format file.

.XER Primavera Exchange Format files are a type of file used in Primavera P6, a project management software developed by Oracle. Primavera is widely used in construction, engineering, and manufacturing industries. XER files are used to export/import project data between Primavera systems and versions.

For example, a construction firm that uses Primavera P6 to manage a project can export project data to a .xer file and give it to a supplier using a different Primavera release. The supplier can then import the .XER file into thier system to access the project data and collaborate on the project.
