Project Professional 2003 MPP file upload to Project Professional 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We wanted to migrate from Project Server 2003 to 2013.

    For that, we have installed the project server 2013 on a new system.

    we wanted to do it in the unorthodox way.

    I mean - 

    We have around 180 projects running in our Organization.

    1) We have saved each and every mpp (2003 format) in local, uploaded the existing projects to 2013.

    2) After upload, the local resources in a project became enterprise resources. But, the local resource name stays there. And for the project managers, it is very difficult to differentiate between the local and enterprise resource names.

    The resource mapping has become a huge issue while uploading an existing project from 2003 to 2013!!!

    Can you please let me know is it correct to upload the projects this way?

  • If you select the box to use the import wizard the resources should get mapped ok.  Make sure your 2013 Project Server and Project 2013 are patched up to date (although this doesn't sound like any bug we have fixed).  Where exactly are you seeing the local resources?
