Chapter 27. The Project Center > Adding Documents to a Project

Adding Documents to a Project

Projects frequently rely on Office documents (presentations, worksheets, and word processing files), as well as documents from other programs, such as images, statistics, Acrobat PDFs, or desktop publishing publications. The Project Center allows any file to be associated with a project. By including key files in a project, you can quickly open them for editing or viewing.

To add a document to a project

  • Do any of the following:

    • On the Files tab of the Project Center, click the Add button. In the Add File dialog box that appears, select the file that you want to add to the current project and click Open.

    • On the Overview or Schedule tab of the Project Center, click the Add button and choose File from the drop-down menu.

    • On the Schedule tab of the Project Center, click the New button and choose File from the drop-down menu. The Project Gallery appears. Select the type of new Office document you wish to create, simultaneously adding it to the current project.

    • In Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, open the Office Toolbox by choosing Tools > Project Palette. To add the current document to a project (Figure 27.13), select the project from the drop-down menu at the top of the Toolbox and then click the Add current file icon (the plus). Click OK in the confirmation dialog box that appears (Figure 27.14).

      Figure 27.13. You can use Projects tab of the Office Toolbox to add the current Office file to a project.
