    Lost Maps after upgrade to 03 (2003)

    Hi,
    I was using Project 2000 and was recently upgraded to Project 2003. I had about 8 maps that I used for exporting and now when I open the file that I used them in they are no longer there. I've checked the organizer and I can't find them in the global file either. Is there anyway to get them back?
    Thanks,
    Deb

    Deb,

    Have you tried searching for "old" Global files? Does the "Cocuments and Settings<User>Application DataMicrosoftMS Project1033" folder still exist for Version 9.0 (a.k.a. MSP 2000)?

    Yes and no luck. Any other thoughts?

    I was just told that they still have my old PC and may be able to get the file off that pc. Can I just copy over the 03 global file without hurting anything?

    Deb,

    Is it possible that the "upgrade" was not installed as an actual upgrade, but that the MSP 2003 was installed OVER your previous version? Also, did you manually copy the "maps" from the Global file to your project plans? I believe by default that they reside in the Global file.

    Actually I thought they just upgraded us by I just found out we actually got new boxes (they look the same but now with a closer look it is cleaner [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img] ) So I have received a whole new machine with 03 on it. The project files I used are on a network drive. But I was just told that they may be able to get the global file off my old PC. I don't think I must have copied over the maps to the file because they're not there. So my next step was to try the global and copy over and they're not there as well.

    Deb,

    Do you open a "Master" file, or a "resource pool" file when trying to export data via the map? <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> (If so, then your map might be in one of those files ). Also, did they search for ALL Global files on your old PC or just in the default location? Ask them to search the entire drive if they haven't.

    Deb,

    It is also possible that the maps are in a Global.mpt on your network and you just need to set a pointer in startup properties in Project to the network stored Global.mpt. Prior to Project server this was a scenario used so that all Project users had the same custom items available.

    I searched all files. And I'm using a Master File and resource pool and i've looked in all files. But they tell me I can get the file off my old pc. I'm waiting for that to happen.
    Thanks,
    Deb
