Exporting Project 2000 Data to Older Releases of Microsoft Project

As you have probably already experienced while working with computers, many of the commonly used applications that exist have several versions. You may have had problems opening a Microsoft Word document that someone sent to you in a version of Word that is newer than the one you had available on your system. This same situation holds true for Microsoft Project. Therefore, you need to understand the dynamics of a Project 2000 (*.mpp) file format versus a Project 98 (*.mpp) file format.

Saving a Microsoft Project 2000 Plan in the Project 98 Format

There might be times when you need to hand off Project 2000 data to be accessed by someone using Project 98. In this situation you will need to save the Project 2000 plan with the Project 98 (*.mpp) file format. When executing this operation, make sure that the person who is receiving the Project 98 version understands that some of the incompatible data might be lost during the conversion. If it is necessary to save your plan in the Project 98 format, be sure to compare the two files to check for any inconsistencies.
