Saving a Project to Project Server

When working with an enterprise project, you first open the project from Project Server. When you are finished with the project, you save and check in the file to the Project Server database.

Note This section applies only if you're working with Project Professional set up for an enterprise environment.

To save a file to Project Server, follow these steps:

1 If you are already connected to Project Server, click File, Save. If you are not connected to Project Server, click File, Save Online.

The Save To Project Server dialog box appears (see Figure 29-6).
