  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    Can anyone tell the if a project in MS Project Professional 2010 can have more than 5000 tasks and we can save and publish the project without crashing?

    Also please tell me if there is a limit to the maximum number of tasks a project can have in MS Project Professional 2010 and perform without crashing.

  • The limit is 400,000 tasks (See here). Performance is related to the system configuration (amount of memory, speed of the harddisk etc...), structure and editing history of the plan. If you could provide more details on the issue, the participants of the forum may come up with a solution. 

    Meanwhile, pls make sure Project has latest service pack and cumulative updates
