You’re now at the point where you can start Microsoft Project 2007 and actually create your project plan. When you create a new project file, you first decide whether you’re scheduling from a start date or finish date. You set your overall project calendar that the tasks will be scheduled against. If you like, you can attach project documentation such as your all-important scope statement and possibly other project-related documents.
To begin creating your new project plan, you start Microsoft Project and choose whether you’re creating a new project from scratch or from a template.
If you haven’t installed Microsoft Project yet, refer to Appendix A, for installation details and guidelines.
