Margreet, my first response is that the best solution by far for managing and/or reporting 50+ projects is through Project Online / Server. Depending on the size of the schedules, opening 50 projects might not even work. But, assuming Project Online / Server isn’t in the cards, I’ll provide a solution that might work for you.

You can open multiple projects at the same time by using Windows Explorer. Just select multiple projects using the Control or Shift key to select the projects and then select Open. Once open, go to the View menu and select New Window. You’ll be able to select multiple projects and open them in a specific view (which could be a custom view from your global). Now you have all project tasks in a single view. As stated, I’m not sure this will work with 50 projects but you can extend this by using Excel. You’ll just need to do this in separate batches.

Not the best answer but again I would encourage Project Online. There may be a tool or app that can open multiple project schedules within Windows Explorer but I don’t know of any at the moment. Someone might also have other ideas. Hope that helps…
