Saving the New File

You can save Microsoft Project data in a variety of formats, but the standard format uses the file extension .mpp.

To Do: Saving a Project Document

To save your work to disk, do the following:

1.
Choose File, Save from the menu or click the Save tool on the Standard toolbar to display the Save dialog box (see Figure 3.10). If the file has already been saved, but you would like to save it with a different name or in a different folder, choose File, Save As instead.

Figure 3.10. Save your work as a Project file type.


2.
The Save In box suggests the default folder. Select the folder you want to use.

Like the other Microsoft Office products, Microsoft Project uses a default directory for saving and opening files. You can specify the name and location of default folders under Tools, Options, Save, as discussed earlier in this hour.

3.
Provide a name for the project in the File Name box.

4.
If you want to provide password protection for the file, click the Tools button and choose General Options to display the Save Options dialog box (see Figure 3.11).

Figure 3.11. You can provide password protection in the Save Options dialog box.


Type a password in the Protection Password box if you want to keep people who don't know the password from opening the file. Type a password in the Write Reservation Password box if you want to allow people to open and modify the plan but not be able to save changes over the original without knowing the password.

Both of these passwords can contain up to 17 characters and are case-sensitive. Be sure you write down the passwords you use and store them in a safe place. You must remember the password to be able to use the file.

5.
Click OK to close the Save Options dialog box.

6.
Click Save to save the file.
