You can bring information into Project from another Project file or from Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access, or Microsoft Word. You also can import information that was created in any program that can save text (.TXT) files or comma-separated value (.CSV) files. When you import a Project file, you actually consolidate two Project files. When you import non-Project files, you use an import/export map to define the data that you want to import.
Tip You can import XML files into Project. In the Open dialog box, select the XML file.
Project launches the Import Wizard, where you make one choice: You choose to * append the data in the file to the active project, merge the data in the file with the data in the active project, or import the file as a new file.
