  • I advise makinf sure Project 2007 users are on SP3 and Project 2010 on SP1. There may be some problems sharing files otherwise.

  • Project 2007 is only SP1 - do you have a specific article that recommends SP3 if transferring to from Project 2010 ?

    While converting back and forth in a mixed version environment (I mean client versions), it is possible to have problems with mpp files if the versions in both ends do not have the latest updates, that is, SP2 for Project 2007 and SP1 for Project 2010. It's now SP3 for Project 2007. That may be the case if you get an "This file was created by a never version of MS Office Project" error while opening a Project 2007 file with Project 2010. By the way, I would appreciate it if you could send me your mpp file in case you get that error in Project 2010 as I need such files to work on... (projectuser-at-fastmail.fm)
