Saving a local 'project server 2010' file for use in 'project server 2016?' RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    A quick question - if I save a local version of a project server 2010 file, would I then be able to use that file in project 2016? Or would I have to recreate all my 2010 schedules in 2016.

    Thanks

  • Hi Steve,

    You definitely can save locally a project from PS2010. Then open Project 2016 and you should have no issue to open the local 2010 file and work on it with Project 2016.


    Hope this helps,

  • Yes you will.

    From Project 2010, there is not more specific file format. Meaning that an mpp saved with Project 2010/2013/2016 can be opened, edited, saved with any of the 3 latest versions. Note that on the contrary, if you have multiple timelines with a 2016 project file, if you update it with Project 2010/2013, you'll not get the multiple timelines since this is a new feature in 2016 version.


    Hope this helps,
