Exporting to other project management software

You can use the .MPD file format to export Project 2003 information to older versions of Project. Some other project management software packages also support .MPD files, so if you need to export Project information to another project management software package, you can save it as an .MPD file.

To export information in MPD format, follow these steps:

1. Choose FileOSave As.

2. In the Save As dialog box, open the Files of type list box and select MPD.

3. In the File name box, supply a name for the file that you want to export.

4. Click Save, and Project displays the Project Definition dialog box, which suggests a name for the Project.

5. Click Finish.

Note The Microsoft Project database (.MPD) file format has replaced the .MPX file format. You can use the .MPD file format with any program that supports either the .MPD file format or Microsoft Access database formats.
