11.18. Unlinking .MPP file from @RISK

Applies to: @RISK 6.x/7.x, Professional and Industrial Editions, when used with projects

I imported my .MPP file into @RISK. I want to continue simulating costs and other items, but I'm no longer interested in simulating the schedule. Can I unlink the MPP file so that Microsoft Project is no longer involved in my simulation?

Yes, this is easily done:

  1. Open Excel's name manager. (In Excel 2007 or above, click Formulas » Name Manager. In Excel 2003 or below, click Insert » Name » Define.)

  2. Delete the name RiskMPPPath and save the workbook.

This will remove the link with Project, and you can move or delete the .MPP file. Please be aware that the Gantt chart and related information in the Excel workbook will no longer be updated.
