Inserting one project into another

You can also insert tasks from one project into another. You accomplish this by inserting an entire, existing project into another project; The project that is inserted is known as a subproject. This method is useful when various project team members manage different phases of a larger project. The capability to assemble subprojects in one place allows you to create a master schedule from which you can view, all in one place, all the pieces of a larger, more complex project.

Follow these steps to insert another Project file into your plan:

1. In Gantt Chart view, select the task in your task list above which you want the other project to be inserted.

2. Choose InsertOProject.

The Insert Project dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 4-6.

4. If you want to link to the other file so that any updates to it are reflected in the copy of the project you're inserting, select the Link to Project check box.
