General information about MPP format

MPP is a file format created by MS Project. It is able to store all the data about the project, the list of tasks, their sequence, time spent and resources. MPP extension files are presented in the form of a Gantt chart. MS Project does not allow third parties to open, edit and otherwise edit project data in *.mpp format. That is, if you have not been granted access rights, or you do not have the necessary license, then you will not be able to open and work with the project file. Often such a banal reason causes a lot of difficulties in large campaigns, teams, and even their clients. The mpp format file is part of a project created in MS Project. It may include images, texts, graphics, task lists, resources, developers, and the estimated time to complete both the entire project and its individual parts. Microsoft Project creates an .mpp file containing the required parameters for building a particular task. Notably, the schedule chain is visualized using Gantt charts. Newer modifications of the MS Project software can open .mpp files generated by older versions of the utility.
