How do I force a project to check in?

    Question

  • I am using project server and project professional 2010.

    I have a project in server which i edited and tried to save back to server, but an error occurred and although I attempted to check the project back in, it didnt work. I have restarted server and it tells me that this project is checked out to me in another session, but i dont have another session running.

    How do i force this project to check in?

    Navigate to the Project Center page in PWA and click the Check In My Projects button in the Navigate section of the Ribbon.  Select your project and check it in.  If this does not work, this means the project is stuck in the Local Project Cache.  To check it in there, launch Microsoft Project 2010 and connect to Project Server.  Click File > Options > Save and click the Clean Up Cache button.  Click the Project Filter pick list in the middle of the dialog and then select the Projects Checked Out to Me option.  Select the stuck project and click the Remove from Cache button.  One or both of these methods may be needed to check in the stuck project.  Hope this helps.
