Opening a project from SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Project web based subscription and I want to open a file that has been saved on SharePoint by a colleague.

    From what I am reading Project for the web does not read mpp files, so this will not be possible.

    Is this correct and am I supposed to buy Project Standard or Project Professional to be able to do this?

    Also, what format does Project for the web save its files as?

    You are correct that the new Project for the Web cannot open MPP files.  You will need to purchase a license for Microsoft Project Standard or Microsoft Project Professional.  Project for the Web saves the project information in a database, so there is really no file type involved.  Hope this helps.
