  • Are you only looking to move the project schedule/plan or you are looking to move users/resources and their actuals on that project? In another word, if you use timesheet, are you looking into moving that too?

  • The new Project Server 2013 we want to continue to work, full project(s) to move Project Server 2013 and enterprise resources are the same for both server.

  • You can move your databases from PS 2010 to 2013 and upgrade them. This way you maintain same projects and resources.
    Here is more information on how to prepare and upgrade your databases

  • Thank answer, but ...

    We is installed on a separate Project Server 2013, we don't want to upgrade your existing Project Server 2010, slowly we want to move over to the new system.

    I'm thinking some kind of export/import solution, the project file import does not work perfectly.

    Open project in Project Pro. 2010 from server, Save as to file, read saved project file in the Project Pro. 2013, and save to Project Server 2013 (PWA), so far so good, but not perfect transfer of enterprise resources, even though they use the same enterprise resources.

  • You cannot upgrade existing PS2010, you have to do new install of 2013 then move the DB's and upgrade them. in place upgrade is not an option in 2013. So you are half way there. All you need is to copy the databases then use PowerShell to upgrade the databases after you attach them to the new SQL server

  • Again, that’s the reason I don’t like using Project Pro to move project plans, the reason is you lose the Timesheet audit trail, project sites and documents, and Risks/Issues if you have any.

  • 1) Save the project as an mpp file

    2) Open the project in Project 2013 connected to Project Server 2013

    3) Click File > Save As

    4) Select the checkbox "Use Import Wizard" under the Save button for Project Web App

    5) Click the Save button and follow the instructions in the Wizard.

  • Hello,

    This is a useful feature, but unfortunately I can not work properly. Local resources (users) are not well replace the enterprise resources (users), leaving the local resources.

  • Have the exact same problem. We don't want to upgrade old databases as we had some bad experience with migration before and also we'd like to use new database structure instead of old. Saving Project 2010 *.mpp files to Project Server 2013 partly works. Mapping resources leaves local and enterprise resources, so they are not mapped correctly. It works only if you remove "Actual Work" values and save project. After restoring "Actual Work" values (copy paste) at first looks OK, but then I realized that total hours are like 4000 instead of 3000..

  • Did you ever get an answer to this issue? I'm having the same problem that importing project, no matter how I do it and I've tried three different methods, changes remaining work by a pretty large factor.

    Thanks...
