Subproject Displaying Name that Doesn't Match File Name

Hello:

I am trying to use subprojects in Microsoft Project 2010. The problem is that the subproject, when inserted into the Master project, is displaying a previous file name, not the current name of the subproject file.

It is obviously retaining that somewhere. Can someone please tell me how to "reset" it, so the current subproject file name displays?

Thank you

open up My computer and locate the project file

Right click it, go to Summary Tab - change the data there

I am using Windows 7. I do not get a Summary Tab. Check the attached photo for what it shows...

Hi,

this may happen if you rename the MPP file e.g. with a "Save as". You can correct it by opening the project file in Microsoft Project, show the "Project Summary Task" and just type in the correct name. The next time you open the master project, the name of the inserted project should be OK.

Regards

Thomas

FYI... there is no tab. In 2010, there is a box called "summary Task" that you have to check to show that row, which you can then edit.
