Missing Values in .mpp RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are saving projects to mpp files and sending them for review to people that are not connected to our instance on Project Server. The issue we are seeing is that values associated with lookup tables are not captured in the mpp.

    I would expect to lose the data validation, but would like to have the group not connected at least see the values entered into these fields. When I open the mpp while connected to our server the values are there. It is my assumption that it is using UIDs to point to values stored on the server.

    Is there a way I can save the data into the mpp instead of the UID pointer?

    Thanks

  • When you save the file to your local machine, are you checking the option
    to save it with all Enterprise Options and Fields (May Lead to Greater File
    Size)?
     
    I paraphrase, but that should be close enough.

  • Yes, I have tried both options:

    All enterprise custom fields and global items (larger file size)

    Only currently loaded enterprise custom fields and enterprise global items (smaller file size)

    Both show the columns blank when opened locally. Both show the columns populated when opened connected to server.
