Share formulas with other projects

You can share most customized elements between projects by copying them with the Organizer. Although the Organizer has tabs for most elements, a tab for formulas doesn't exist. To copy a formula between projects, you have to copy the custom field whose definition contains the formula.

For more information about sharing elements, see "Sharing Customized Elements among Projects" later in this chapter on page 812.

You can also import the formula from a custom field in another project into a custom field in the active project. In the Formula dialog box, click Import Formula. In the Import Formula dialog box, click the project that contains the formula; select the option for the type of field (Task, Resource, or Project), and then click the name of the custom field that contains the formula.
