Displaying Tasks from Different Files in the Same Window

The Window, New Window command deserves special attention. Combined with the Insert, Project command, you can merge multiple project files into one window to edit, view, print, or even link their tasks in one view. Each task retains its native ID number, so you will see more than one task with ID number 1. You can modify the display to add a column that identifies the file that each task came from. You can sort the task list as if it were one file; you can filter the merged list in the same way you use filters in one file. You can apply any table or view to see the merged view, including the Network Diagram. You can print views or reports from the merged window as though it were a single project file. You can even insert and delete tasks.

There are two basic approaches to combining projects together into one window. One is with the Window, New Window command. This approach assumes that all the files to be combined are already open. The second is with the Insert, Project command and allows access to files that are not currently open.
