    Title:
    Microsoft Projects Integration with PPM
    Summary:
    I don't see the option to update an existing project
    Content:

    My goal is to download an existing project to Microsoft Projects, make some changes to the wbs and progress and then upload to PPM.    

     

    • I  successfully installed the ms projects integration (using ms projects 2010) 
    • I was able to connect to ppm and see my projects 
    • I can download a project ​(import new project icon)
    • I then make a change and upload as a new project ​(export new project icon)
    • The export process starts and only gives me the option to create a new project
    • Any ideas on how to update an existing project using the ms projects integration?

      Is this for the Cloud or EBS?  Regardless, the integration does not support synchronization of bi-directional changes.  There is no way to know which application is pushing the right change.  Either Oracle or MSP needs to be the master.  If the Project was created in Oracle, then all changes can only be made in Oracle.  MSP becomes a report application.  Plus the views/filters in MSP are better. If the Project was created in MSP, then MSP is the master and all changes are to be made in MSP.
