Project Professional can share local resources only when not logged on Project Server. If Project Professional is using a Project Server profile, local resource sharing is unavailable.


In the following example, the project that contains the resources to share is named SharedResourcePool.mpp. If the active project is named Sharer.mpp, the code enables Sharer.mpp to access resources from SharedResourcePool.mpp, where resources in the pool take precedence. Both projects must be open.
