Create A New Project From An Existing Project Or Database
You may find it helpful to base a new project on an existing Microsoft Office Project (MPP) file or a Microsoft Office Project Database (MPD) file. When basing a new project on an existing project file, the existing file must be closed. If you are basing your new project on a file from a version of Microsoft Project earlier than Microsoft Project 98, first use that version of Microsoft Project to save the project in the MPX file format. Base the new project on the MPX file. This paper explains how to create a new project from an existing project or database.
