I identified the following problem while merging a subproject into a master project file. Since there were similar resources in both these files, It created duplicate entries for the resource names. Now I want to eliminate the duplicate resources and I was wondering if there is an easier way than going to the Gnatt chart and modifying the resource name in each task, to remove the duplicate names?

Appreciate your time.

Thanks,
Nihal

The technical way is to create a resource pool - there is a lot of information on this within the help system so I'll not repeat it here unless you want me to.

Some of the key things that I have run across in the past are:
1. Keep your resource pool and projects in the same folder for the fastest preformance

2. Remember that if you save another version of the any of the files (e.g. for version control) it will still be linked to the pool file and as such the pool with think that you have added another file to the project and hence will show the resources as over loaded.  To avoid this when you save the file as a new version remove the link to the resource pool (tools / resource sharing / Share / use own resources)

3. Try to avoid putting tasks etc in the resource pool.

4. A resource pool is very powerful, however if you are only every going to have two plans you might like to look at a smaller version which is just to share the resources from Project A into Project B.  Many of the same rules apply (saving versions and keeping projects in the same area) however it is easier to understand what is happening

5. I find it very useful to insert a column "project" into the resource view so that you can see where the task is occuring to see if an over allocation is within the project that you are viewing or a sharring project.

Hope this helps
