Combine subprojects from a master file into one project file

Posted on 2011-05-13

Hi everybody,

I have a pretty complex master project (MSP 2010) with several subprojects and dependencies between subprojects. Is there any way of combining all the subprojects into one sigle project file (not a master prjoject with subprojects). I need to keep the dependencies (successor and predecessor activities)

The links in the new file should change from "C:\projects\file1.msp\1" to 1 (or whatever number the activity gets in the new file).

Thanx // G

    When you insert a project into another project file the tasks, as you know, are linked.  They stay in the original file and can be edited, changed, or deleted as if they are in the same file.
    It sounds like you want all the tasks to reside in one project file.   This can be done with a copy/paste.  Open multiple projects, select the tasks and paste them into a single project file.  No links.
