Error when saving a file in PS 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good afternoon,

    A client of mine is interested in determining why some of the projects he is trying to save give this error (he is using PS 2007) get the following error:


    The file cannot be opened

    > Check that the file name and path are correct Check that the file

    > format is recognized by Project

    Project files save in version earlier that Microsoft Project 98 can't be opened."

    We have a workaround to export to MPP or XML but he is interested in the cause so maybe he can avoid the inconvenience, or possible corruption, in the future.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.


    Thanks, Jack

  • Check if the project has the duplicate resource.
    Open a new project, go to Insert| Project and then remove the duplicate resource from this project, by folloing these steps:

    i.  Go to resource sheet view.

    ii. Sort by Name, and identfy duplicate resource with same name.

    iii. Add column Work and Actual Work

    iv. Delete duplicate with no work.
