Quit sharing resources

Suppose you decide that you no longer want to use the resource pool file. Follow these steps to disable the resource pool for a specific project:

1. Open that project.

2. Choose ToolsOResource SharingOShare Resources.

3. Select the Use own resources option button in the Share Resources dialog box (refer back to Figure 15-21).

However, suppose that you decide that you want to disable the resource pool in general for all files that are sharing the resources of one resource pool. Do you need to open each file and disable resource sharing? No. Follow these steps to disable the resource pool file in general:

1. Open the resource pool file in read-write mode by using the Open dialog box—the same way that you would open any file. Project displays the Open Resource Pool box, as shown in Figure 15-25. Choose the middle option or the last option in this dialog box — either option enables you to disable the pool because both options open the file as a read-write file.
