Chapter 2. Creating Projects > Searching for a Project

Searching for a Project

The Open dialog in Microsoft Project allows you to do complex searches for project files across your machine or your network. This search functionality allows you to not only search for certain file names or file types, but also to search across the other file properties, such as Author, Category, Subject, Title, or Keywords. This can be a powerful tool when files you need to access have been moved from their original location or are misplaced.

Perform a Basic Search

Click File, Open to bring up the Open dialog, click the Tools menu, and select Search.

Enter the text you want to search for in the Search Text field.

In the Search In field, specify where to look for your files.

In the Results Should Be field, specify the file types to search for.

Click the Go button to start your search.

The Results field shows you the files that match your search.

Select your file and click OK to go back to the Open dialog.
