Creating Links Between Tasks in Separate Projects

You can create two basic types of links between projects. In the first type, all the tasks of one project taken together are the predecessor or successor to a group of tasks in another project. For example, in the New Product project file, the design phase is probably handled by another department that is also using Microsoft Project. Many other tasks in the New Product project can't proceed until the design phase is complete. You could insert the entire project for the design phase and link it as you would link any other task.

A second kind of link occurs when a specific task in another project—not the project start or finish—needs to be linked to a specific task in the current project file. For example, in the design phase, there is a task called Prototype Completed. Although the design phase as a whole might not be complete, some sales and marketing tasks could begin when the prototype is complete.
