.p3 File Extension

Developer: Oracle
File type: Primavera P3 Project File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .p3. Files with the file extension .p3 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .p3 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .p3 file?

The .p3 file extension is commonly used by the Primavera P3 software. This software allows users to create their projects in an organized manner no matter what the project is. In other words, this software, developed by Primavera Systems and acquired by Oracle, makes project construction easier. This helps students, teachers, businessmen, engineers, organizers, etc. successfully save time and effort when it comes to constructing their projects. Plus, users are guaranteed that the projects they can create using the software are high quality projects. The project files that are created using the software are called .p3 files because they are saved in the .p3 format after they are created. These files may contain tasks and other resources that are used for project completion. These files contribute to the planning and tracking of project progress using project manager software. The .p3 files can only run on Windows, though. These files can be opened with Oracle Primavera, Primavera Enterprise Project  and Foxit Reader, but even though they are mainly used by P3 software, they can still be opened using Primeravera P6 version.

how to open a .p3 file?

Launch a .p3 file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .p3 file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .p3 files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .p3 file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .p3 file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .p3 files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .p3. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
