What is MPP file?

MPP files contain data stored with a specialised software for managing projects: Microsoft Project. Within MPP files, user can find such data as time axis, list of tasks, and other information about a project – thus they are a valuable support for project managers.

Functions of MPP files

MPP files, generated with MS Project, can be used within project teams, in order to:

  • Manage task assignment,
  • track and report progress,
  • control finances,
  • create schedules, etc..

MPP project files can be updated by different members of a given team. In order to minimise risk of an unauthorised access, the access privileges and blockades of specific information within the files, can be defined.

MPP files compatibility

In order to provide maximum compatibility of changes introduced by different members of a given team working on a project, it is advised to update Microsoft Project to its latest version. In case of using different versions of Microsoft Project, there may occur problems regarding proper read of modifications introduced by other users.

Conversion of a MPP file

When you install one of the applications from the list of programs that you found here, you should be able to open or edit the file with the MPP extension without any issue. However, if you still have problems with this, you may use the option of MPP file conversion to a different format.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the MPP file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the MPP file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the MPP file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the MPP file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the MPP file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the MPP file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
