Microsoft Project File saved in Version 2003 displays Blank in Project 2010
Posted on 2011-02-23
I have recieved a number of MS Project files from an external client, they are running on MS Project 2003. I am running Project 2010 Professional Edition. Some of the files open correctly, but others open up as a complete blank.
I have gone to my client and verified that he has not sent me a blank Project file, I have even gone as far as saving the Project file to a memory stick. When I try to open the file it displays nothing, as if it was a blank project file.
If I open the same file in Project 2007 however it displays everything.
Am totally stumped and cannot figure this one out. I have all of the latest Service Packs installed for the OS and Office version.
One thing to mention and I do not know if this is an issue, I am running 64Bit Windows 7 OS but am using 32Bit version of Project. I have tested this on a PC running 64Bit Project 2010.
I have not yet tested this on a 32bit Windows 7 OS, will try this a little later on.
500 Points up for grabs to the one who can solve it.
