Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Selecting and Managing a Project Portfolio with Microsoft Project.
- [Instructor] In this course I've setup exercise files you can use to follow along. You'll find these files in the Exercise Files folder, which I've placed on the desktop, but you can store it wherever you like. These files reside in subfolders named according to the chapters. Beginning in chapter three, the exercise files include master project files with inserted sub files. As long as you keep these files together in the same folder the links will work, even if you copy the folder to another location.
You don't have to use these files. You can use files of your own. This course builds from movie to movie, so you can even start with a blank project file. Let's get started.
