project vba - Linked Projects and SharePoint

Posted on 2011-10-17

Hi there,

we are using SharePoint to share, and as with all things we have our individual porjects stored and being updated by teams.  What we are trying to do is create a master plan of those projects with all projects linked together.

the problem we are having is that we cannot see how to Linked projects using Hyperlinks (SharePoint references) - Project only accepts local/networked links.

So we tried to create a procedure to copy the necessary files from SharePoint library and do the updates locally in the master but that fails also.

So without going to Porject Server, what is the best method of running a master project with sharePoint linked sub-projects

Thanks and regards

    Link 2 addresses Project Server which I've already said we don't use, and don't want to use.

    Link 1 does exactly what we are already doing.

    I was hoping for more, but obviously it isn't going to happen...

    thanks anyway
