    hello

    I have the Microsoft Project 2002 template Global.mpt. Ive amended the default template about 3 years ago. ive customised the template and added fields into the footer.

    I need to amend the template again however have forgotten how to.

    In Microsoft Project, I click Open. navigate to Global.mpt, it opens a new project. and doesnt open the actual template for me to amend.

    any ideas

    many thanks

    To make add to or remove items from the Global.mpt file Open Project and select Tools =>> Organizer and use the dialog box to make changes. To add custom items create the custom named item in single file then add it to the Global.mpt using the orgainzer.

    hello csimms

    apologies for the delay, Ive just got around to looking at this.

    I followed your instructions. In the organiser I couldnt find fields "file name and path:.

    This is how I edited the Global.mpt with my requested changes:

    • Open up ms-project
    • goto menu View, Header and Footer...
    • click tab Footer
    • click tab Left
    • in the Generated drop downlist: select "file name and path",click Add
    • Save As Global.mpt in a different directory location.
    • Copy new Global.mpt into Office XP ms-project template location :
      C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\Globa.mpt
    • check new changes appear, by opening up ms-project & creating new ms project files



    The one thing I did notice, on print the file name was truncated. see screen capture
    Is there anyway to increase the box that displays file name and date:? If not then thats ok as the data I require to display the "number" is displaying.

    thank you
