MS Project 2013 Crashes When Saving Global.MPT RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have run into an issue at my company as of late in MS Project 2013.  When closing any file, the program crashes when it is saving the Global.mpt file.  It has just started doing this within the past month.  I'm not sure if it has anything to do with a corrupted Global.mpt file or not.  All of our files are saved onto a server.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi,

    Global.mpt files are rather big and when saved onto a file server may be incompletely saved due to server timeout. If you can still open the global:

    -Open Project, and through the Organizer, copy all customized objectd-s you want to keep into a .mpp file

    -Save this file, close everything

    - Rename the problematic global into something like _Global.mpt

    - Open Project: anew Global.mpt will be generated

    - If necessary, ope the file with the saved objects and copy into the new global.
