Project Repair

by CuthbertMann In reply to How fix .mpp file?

If you can't open the file in MS Project, and none of the other MVP FAQ methods are working for you, then the native libraries in VBA aren't going to be able to open it either I'm afraid. However, that's not to say it's irrecoverable just yet. Here are a couple of ideas:
Different Version of Project - You don't say which version of MS Project you're using, but I've had a corrupt file in the past which would not open in 2007, but we were able to open it in 2010. If you can get access to another version of MSP then that might fix it (I have an instance of 2010 available now if you want to send the file to me to try).
2013 has been available for some time now - I've not used it yet, but it may be even more robust than 2010 when it comes to handling corrupt data. Different Application - There are a number of viewer applications out there - just google "MPP Viewer", and as they don't use the MS libraries, they may be able to open files that MS Project can't.

Try: Project Repair Kit. An absolute must-have for anyone willing to find out how to repair MS Project file contents with a few clicks and without leaving their workplace. This corrupt MS Project file repair software saves money and time by letting users restore their data on their own and forget about expensive specialized services.
