I tried to open an Enterprise project that is hosted on Project server 2007 from within Microsoft office Project 2007 that is shared by other users in my organisation. After selecting the project, a message box popped up showing that I can only open the project in Read-Only mode.
” This project cannot be opened in read-write mode because a previous checkin for this project is not complete.
Do you want to open this project read only? “
Sometimes projects will be in a checked out state in the Local Cache. To open the project in Read-Write mode…
Click Tools -> Local Project Cache -> Cleanup Cache
Select the project that you are trying to open and click the “Remove From Cache” button. If the project is not visible in the current list, click the Project Filter pick list and select the “Projects Checked Out to You” item, select the project, and click the “Remove From Cache” button. Always get the latest service pack from Microsoft and apply them to your office applications.
