Chapter 25. Enterprise Project Administr... > Managing the Enterprise Global Templ...

Managing the Enterprise Global Template

Previous versions of Microsoft Project, as well as the Standard edition of Microsoft Project 2002 and 2003, use a file called GLOBAL.MPT to store, manage, and share data items such as custom fields, views, filters, groups, reports, and calendars on a single computer. This section describes how Project 2003 extends the notion of a Global template for the enterprise and how to manage this new Enterprise Global template.

Understanding GLOBAL.MPT, the Enterprise Global Template, and the Enterprise Cache

When you start the Standard edition, GLOBAL.MPT loads into memory, along with any project file(s) that you are loading. When you exit the Standard edition, all changes made to GLOBAL.MPT data are saved with the project file only. This means that any changes made to a view, for example, are available to you only within that project file; they are not directly available to other project files. If you use the Organizer to save that view to GLOBAL.MPT, the changes are available across all projects that are tied to that GLOBAL.MPT file.
