Organizing Views and Other Custom Elements in Project Files

All the customized changes you make in a Project file—whether by defining views, tables, filters, groups, or format specifications—are saved as part of the current file. However, you can choose to make these customized elements available to other project files or to all projects by storing them in an underlying template. In Microsoft Project, the global template file is GLOBAL.MPT.

When you start Microsoft Project, GLOBAL.MPT loads with the project file. When you exit Project, all changes made to elements such as views are saved only with the project file. Customized views created for one project file are not directly available to other project files. If you save the view definition to the global file, however, these customized views can be made available across all project files that rely on that global file. This is also true for other customized objects, such as custom tables, filters, and field definitions.
