MS Project 2013: linked subproject must have task 5 complete for master project to start on task 6

Hi everyone,

I have several projects on MS Project 2013 and a "Master" project where I have imported my subprojects.

Here's the issue:  I have several projects where I can't start one of the phases of the master projects until sub projects A, B, C, finish task 5.  After task 5 is complete on each of these projects, then the master project can start on task 6.

How do I show this on MS Project? The subprojects DO NOT need to be complete 100% for the master project to start on task 6 but each of them need to get to a certain point before the next task in the master project starts.

I hope this makes sense.  Thanks for your help!

in the master project show the tasks from the inserted sub project and drag/drop the dependency link in the way you would any other task. The predecessor column should show something like "<>\project name\4FS"

Is that not what you need?

Yes, this is exactly what I needed.  Thank you!

The Predecessor shows up as "Drive Location:\Folder\ProjectName.mpp\9

Is there a way to rename this or this because that's where it's pulling the information from?

that should be the filename of the sub project, note that project isn't clever enough to track revisions if you save to a different filename or move it to a different folder.
