Migration from MS Project 2003 to MS Project Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am looking to get a way to migrate from the existing shared workspace which contains the MS sub Projects (including the Master Project) to MS Project Server 2010. There are currently 20 sub projects with three levels of abstraction. The Level 1 is the Master Project. The Level 2 contains individual projects for each streams (requirements; design; build and deployment). The level 3 contains subprojects within each stream. The Master project cannot be shifted alone as this will break the linkage between the sub-project and the Master Project. My question is there any way to shift the whole workspace containing all the sub-projects(and the Master Project) to the MS Project Server 2010 environment without breaking the existing links.

    Many thanks!

  • You will have to temporally break the links when you move from one environment to another but its easy to recreate. Test this out on a test environement.

  • Hi Chistophe, thanks for the reply but if there are 20 projects overall(with complex interlinking), breaking one link can trigger multiple breakage between many schedules. What I mean is one predecessor item in one schedule could be a successor for many items in the successor schedules. In such a situation, it will become a very cumbersome task to break the links and again create them for multiple schedules. Any thoughts on that? Kind regards.

    I assume that you solved your problem by now. If  you haven't, you can copy the links into a local custom text field, in each project, and then copy them back after migration. If you don't change the project names, this should work for you.
