Storing a project in the Project Server database

At this point, you've probably set up a project schedule on your local hard drive that you're ready to store in the Project Server database. After you've set the project's options to define it as a Web-based project, you need to log on to Project Server and then save the project in the Project Server database.

Open Project Professional, and log on to Project Server (refer to the section "Logging on to Project Server," earlier in this chapter). Then, open the project that you want to store on the Project Server and choose FileOSave As. You see the Save to Project Server dialog box. The version of the box that you see in Figure 20-7 includes custom fields. If your Enterprise Global template doesn't contain custom fields, you see a box similar to the one shown in Figure 20-8.

Tip If you prefer wizards, you can use the Import Project Wizard to save your project to the Project Server database. Don't open your project; instead, choose Toolso * Enterprise Optionsolmport Project to Enterprise. Then, follow the wizard's steps.

After saving your project, Project changes the name of your project in the title bar so that you know that you're viewing the version that you saved to the Project Server database. The name of the published version includes the word Published; for example, if your original project name was network, the published version would be named network.Published.
