The resource sharing commands are dimmed
If the Resource Sharing and Share Resources commands are grayed-out, it indicates that you are working with an enterprise project. Enterprise projects do not use local resource pools. They use the enterprise resource pool instead.
To access the enterprise resource pool, click Tools, Build Team From Enterprise.
For more information about working with the enterprise resource pool, see "Building Your Enterprise Project Team" on page 655.
Even if your organization is set up for enterprise project management, you can still create a local (non-enterprise) project using a local resource pool. Start a new project file. When you click File, Save, the Save To Project Server dialog box appears. Click Save As File. The Save As dialog box appears, in which you can save the project on your own computer, making it a local rather than enterprise project. With this project, you can create and use a local resource pool.
