By the way: I’m using MSP 2013 Standard with MS Server (too bad – they said we can’t buy it right now).
Well I did my best to reconstruct the former file structure and disconnect all other pools from my current main file. It looks like it worked, in that only a single assignment is showing up now in both the pool and the main file. The multiples are gone.
However, I noticed 2 things about unique IDs 1. the resources unique IDs of the main file do not match the pool. 2. the unique ID of the assignments in the pool is different from that in the main file. Is that normal? I suppose it might be since one file has no way of assigning a unique ID before being connected to another file by way of a pool. Correct?
I’m also missing some resources in the main file that I have in the pool, I think resources I added to the pool after sharing the pool resources with the main file. I thought the main file was supposed to show all the pool resources, and I believe it did in the past.
I wonder if I should reconstruct the pool in case the file got corrupted. If I decide to do that, is it best practice to have no resources in the main file and have them all in the pool? What about calendars?
