Synchronizing Microsoft Project Information Stored in an SQL Server Database
If a project is stored in an ODBC source such as SQL Server database, do the following to synchronize the project to Project Management:
Open the project in Microsoft Project.
Select Save As to save the project to your local system.
Synchronize the saved Microsoft Project file to Project Management.
Note: In order to synchronize a project to Project Management, the project must be in a file format. The binary MPP file format is recommended.
