HUGE MS Project 10 file RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know almost nothing about MS Project.  My staff created a relatively small and basic Project Plan (200 tasks maybe..not a lot of associations...just a list of tasks with other tasks under them)...and it's 45MB.  I should be under 1MB.  Any ideas?

    I suspect teh file was corrupt from the start, and something is 'hidden' somewhere

  • Try saving to XML and then reopening from XML - then saving back into Project.
