The File "Blah.mpp" cannot be opened. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Error, claiming the following:

    -Project files saved in a version earlier than Microsoft Project 2000 can't be opened

    -If your file is from an earlier version, open it in that version, click save as (File menu), and save in MPX format. Open the MPX file in the current version of Project. When you use this method, project data is imported, but formatting is lost

    I only have one version on my laptop... This does not make any sense to me how this could happen? Has anyone run into this issue and is there a fix. 7 months of data at risk

  • Create a new file. Insert the "problem" file using "Project, Sub Project (uncheck Link to Project").

    Save the new file with a name.


    Re-open the new file. Let me know if there's still a problem.
