Hi, I would like to add what Larry and Jigs wrote. The linked files appear in the Microsoft Project interface as if they are absolute path references (i.e. “C:\My Documents\MyProject.MPP”), but, in fact, they are relative path references (i.e. “Look in the same directory/folder for this file” or “Go one directory/folder level up and then one level down into “\My Projects” to look for this file name”). This means that, if you move a whole system of linked files from one directory/folder to another directory/folder, you would never need to re-link those files.
BTW I describe in detail how to work with linked files and shared resource pools in my textbook ‘Forecasting Programs’. Thanks!
