Linking new plans to a resource pool
Because the resource pool is the active plan, the Share Resources dialog box contains
the paths and filenames of its sharer plans. If you ever wanted to break a link to a
sharer plan, you can do so here.
Click Cancel to close the Share Resources dialog box.
Next, you’ll look at the list of resources in the resource pool. You’d expect these same
resources to become available to any new plan you make a sharer of this resource
On the View tab, in the Resource Views group, click Resource Sheet .
The Resource Sheet view appears. This is the information that will become available
to the new plan you make a sharer plan of this resource pool.
On the File tab, click New , and then click Blank project .
Project creates a new plan.
On the File tab, click Save As .
Navigate to the Chapter21 folder.
The Save As dialog box appears.
In the File name box, type Consolidating C , and then click Save .
On the Resource tab, in the Assignments group, click Assign Resources .
The Assign Resources dialog box is initially empty because you have not yet entered
any resource information in this plan.
On the Resource tab, in the Assignments group, click Resource Pool and then click
Share Resources .
The Share Resources dialog box appears.
Under Resources for ‘Consolidating C’ , select the Use resources option.
Make sure that Lucerne Resource Pool is selected in the From box, and then click OK
to close the Share Resources dialog box.
In the Assign Resources dialog box, you see all the same resource names appear that
you saw in the resource pool.
