Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

A clean way to break up you project into four sub projects and to keep the interproject relationships in P3 is to:

1. Create 4 subprojects by using the File New command and add the new project to an existing Project Group.
2. Open the Project Group, and that will open up all the projects.
3. To assign an activity to a Subproject, the Activity ID has to be prefixed with the Subproject ID, assigned when the subproject was created. This may be completed several ways, but the existing ID needs to be 8 or less characters so 2 extra may be put in front. You may copy and past and select the Prefix or Suffix option and assign the activities with the 2 Character Subproject ID as a prefix, and remember to Paste the Links (which will keep your interproject relationships); then delete the original copied activities. You may also use Global Change; or manually add the prefix, but this may take time if there are a lot to do.
4. Now you will be able to open either the project group which will be all the activities of all four projects or on subproject at a time.
5. Activities without a Subproject Activity ID are considered part of the Project Group.
6. Inter project relationships are entered at Project Group Level.
7. You need to understand the advanced scheduling found under Tools, Schedule, Options, Advanced tab.

Wouldnt you just copy your main plan four times, delete from each of these copies those activities which arent relevant to each area. Copy your original plan to a new name and delete all activities.
Copy each of your four plans to the new master plan, being mindful of activity id character limits and naming conventions.

Should you be interested in teaching yourself from a book you may wish to investigate my P3 book.

All my books (P3, SureTrak, Primavera Enterprise and Microsoft Project) are written to be used as a self teach book, for training course handouts and may be used as reference manuals.

You are able to download some sample chapters from my web page so you are able to see the style and content and should you be interested in reading some reviews there are plenty on amazon.com.

To my available information, all P3 related training courses are in Chinese. If you want to attend an English one, it’s may be available in HK.

If you want more information, let me know. I keep in touch to Primavera authorized trainers in both China and HK. I try my best to let them have know and special arrangement may be available for you.
