Cannot save in previous version RRS feed

  • Question

  • I built a project using MS Project 2016, it's in great shape.  When I try to save it in a previous version because my PM is using MSProject 2010 and cannot open my .mpp I get a strange message:

    The selected file format only supports dates up to december 31, 2049

    To save to the selected file format, update the dates and try again

    My project starts on May 12 and the end date is Jan 12, 2017

    So I have no clue where to look for this error?  Can someone help me ?

  • Do you have any deadlines set? Try removing them.
