Searching for a Project


The Open dialog in Microsoft Project allows you to do complex searches for project files across your machine or your network. This search functionality allows you to not only search for certain file names or file types, but also to search across the other file properties, such as Author, Category, Subject, Title, or Keywords. This can be a powerful tool when files you need to access have been moved from their original location or are misplaced.
