Sync Errror with Sharepoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • There have been numerous discussions on this topic, but no answer. The issue is the following message:

    "The task list was last synchronized to a different project plan. If you continue the task list will be appended to the project plan."

    Steps are as follows:

    1) Create a MS Project Plan

    2) Create a Sharepoint Project Task list

    3) Sync and Save the file to the Sharepoint site

    4) Check-out and open the MS Project plan.

    5) Make changes to Plan

    5) Sync file to Sharepoint Project Task List

    6) Save file

    7) Check-in file

    Everything works fine up to this point. Now change one factor (which does occur) step 6 as follows:

    1) Create a MS Project Plan

    2) Create a Sharepoint Project Task list

    3) Sync and Save the file to the Sharepoint site ( I chose this option to manage versions)

    4) Check-out and open the MS Project plan.

    5) Make changes to Plan (add 500+ tasks) Save/sync file every chance I get (auto-save set for 5 minutes)

    6) SYSTEM or MS Project crashes before saving changes

    7) Reopen MS Project Plan and try to Sync: Error:

    "The task list was last synchronized to a different project plan. If you continue the task list will be appended to the project plan."

    Is there a solution to this problem?

  • Did you happen to do a COPY/PASTE when you added the 500 tasks.   If you did, that's your problem.

    As a general rule try avoiding COPY/PASTE, especially of rows, because you are copying over 500 other fields and they often have unique IDS that can cause issues.
