How to convert an existing project into a program?





To create a program from an existing project:


1.Open the project you want to convert to a program via the --> Project: Properties: Main - General page.


2.Select the Program check box, and click Save.


The project is converted to a program and no longer appears in your list of projects.




Additional Information:

You can convert an existing project to a program only when the following conditions are true:


•The project contains no tasks.


•The project contains no staff.


•The project is not financially enabled.



Once converted, you can open the program and add subprojects, participants, or edit any of the available properties. Once you convert a project to a program, the Template field, which is used to designate a project as a template, disappears. You cannot use programs as templates because you cannot financially enable them, and because they cannot contain staff or key tasks.
