Exporting and Importing Project File to and From excel RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to export my MS Project '13 file to Excel, send it to a client for them to edit certain dates and criteria in mass and then send the file back to me. I have been able to successfully import but have not been able to open the file back up in MS Project '13. I go through the wizard but the program just hangs and doesn't respond.  Please let me know if anyone has had this problem or knows why the program hangs on reopening/importing the excel file.

  • It certainly shouldn't crash. The crash may however be triggered by either some invalid data or wrong formatting. Try:

    1) Importing the original file you sent to them. If that works, look carefully at the edited version for data problems.

    2) Importing part of the Excel File. If that works, try a bit more until you find the section that causes the problem.

    Obviously use a copy of the file to experiment with!
