PRJ98: No Cross-Project Links if "Link to Project" Not Selected

Article ID: 170713

This article was previously published under Q170713


When you insert a project that contains cross-project links and the Link To Project check box is not selected, each inserted project will contain new tasks, causing you to have duplicate tasks across all of the inserted projects.

NOTE: To locate the Link To Project check box, switch to Gantt Chart view and then click Project on the Insert menu.


Microsoft Project 98 does not support cross-project linking if the Link To Project option is not selected. Using the Link To Project option maintains all cross-project links when you insert a new project.


To keep all cross-project links in place, click to select the Link To Project check box in the Insert Project dialog box.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of Microsoft Project listed above.
