      Anyone have suggestions when taking multiple plans and merging into one plan?

      Well, one thing to try is to use the Master / Sub plan feature to create a new master plan, and just insert your existing plans to see what can be done there. I’ve seen best results using this approach with new plans, from scratch, as importing older plans created from different versions of MSP can be problematic, requiring a bit of debugging if things go south.

      Cutting and pasting rows all into one plan is also an option, but the same rules apply: older plans may contain bugs, and pasting from one plan to another in this way may not bring along hidden data that may be relevant (or not). Older crud like that invariably causes problems down the road.

      Well, that’s all I got – best of luck!
