Creating Subprojects and Master Projects

Certainly there are advantages to managing a large or complex project in smaller, separate files. Computing speed, file sharing among co-workers, and faster printing and transmitting of smaller files are a few of the advantages. When the time comes to review, analyze, and report on the plan across all individual files, you create a master project/subproject structure to combine the files of interest in one window. This combined file can be saved and used again later; it does not have to be recreated for each use.

The first method for combining files into a master/subproject structure—using the New Window command—was discussed previously. The following sections describe a second method for combining files—inserting files stored on disk into a new master project plan. Key master file issues, such as maintaining the combined file, removing a subproject, and linking between combined files, also are discussed in the following sections.
