    Make a New Project File from Subset of Existing (2

    Hello y'all,

    I am a complete novice to Project and am seeking your help.

    A client needs to focus on a subset of a much larger .mpp. We can filter the project so we are only viewing the subset desired. For example, we want to focus only on the project portion about bridge 16. And we want to get just that information into an entirely new MS Project file.

    How can I do that? Or, alternatively, can you point me to resources on the Web for tutorials about this?

    Thanks so much,
    G'Day,
    Rich

    Do you just want a separate file or do you want the separate piece to be linked to the main file? If you just want a separate file if you just select the group of tasks you want to create a separate file from and paste them into a new file it will take the tasks selected and all the related information from the dependancies to the resources. If you want master project subproject setup post back and I will provide some direction.

    Hi Carla,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I'm starting of on the GANTT view

    I have discovered the copy and paste technique. Did you mean paste into another Project 2000 new project? Or into Excel?

    In either case, when I paste into either a new Project or into an Excel worksheet, I lose the column headings.

    In Project, data in columns, I am assuming, are hidden, rather than lost.

    I'll attach some screen shots for your info.

    I'm also interested in your kind offer about master project subproject setup post back.

    Thanks so much for your help.

    G'Day,
    Rich

    Looks to me from the screen captures you attached that you are copying data from a custom table. If so you must paste it into the same custom table in the new project file. If you are pasting it into the Task entry table it will just go into the fields in the task entry table. In the Plan file select View ==> Tables <<some table name>> to see what the named table is. It is one I do not recognize from the list defined by the application. Open the new blank file and Select View ==>Tables ==> More Tables and select the same named table from the list and Click apply. Copy your data into the same named table and it should keep the same field headings.
    If the table is not in the More Tables list of the new file return to the original file and select Tools ==> Organizer.
    Select the Tables Tab.
    Select the table in question from the list of tables on the right and click the copy button to put the custom table into your Global.mpt file on the left. This will make this table available to all other project plans you create on your local PC. Then create the new file and do the copy and paste.
