Question about using XML to import user data

I am using PPM 7.5.

I have nine custom text fields (1 through 9) in MS Project (2007 in case it matters) that I would like to get into PPM user data fields 1 through 9 (for simplicity).

I can get the fields to import, but I can't figure out how to define the PPM Field Label. Neither the ProjectUG nor the sample XML file that comes with the MS Project Plug-In explain how to define the PPM Field Label (that I can find, at least).

I've guessed the following, none of which worked:

Name of Custom Field<\PPMPrompt>
"Name of Custom Field"<\PPMPrompt>
Name of Custom Field<\PPMLabel>
"Name of Custom Field"<\PPMLabel>

Does anyone know the correct syntax for defining the PPM Field Name?

Thanks!

Hi,

I think You can use the Token value of the field.

Thanks,
