  • N.Isaac,

    can you be a little more specicifc as to what is the method you are employing and the trouble you are experiencing?

    In order to use one resource pool, you need to set up a Shared Resource Pool, and use the same pool across all sub-projects.

    here is some guidance on how to do it: https://support.office.microsoft.com/en-us/article/Create-and-share-a-resource-pool-64a2416e-b811-4ddf-b039-e0347e233581?CorrelationId=552b031b-6431-4a81-9d7c-c38b3735fae1&ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

  • Linked Master file and linked resource pool = high risk of file corruption.

    Make sure you never:

    • Rename
    • Move
    • Over-write

    any linked file and store the files ONLY on a disk drive that's in the same physical building as yours and not on any disk on the WAN.

    Otherwise its not if but when one or more files will corrupt.
