Error Message 5

There was a problem creating the link.

You cannot create links to projects that are stored on a Web server, and you cannot insert projects from a Web server.
Cause
These error messages occur when you attempt to use features that are unsupported with projects that are saved in Web folders.

Cause for Error Message 1:

This error message occurs when you run a Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications macro that uses ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) to open a project located in a Web folder.

Cause for Error Message 2:

This error message occurs when you copy data from a project that is located in a Web folder, and then paste link it in a project.

Cause for Error Message 3:

This error message occurs when, in a project that is located in a Web folder, you share resources from another project.

Cause for Error Message 4:

This error message occurs when you attempt to insert a project that is located in a Web folder.

Cause for Error Message 5:

This behavior occurs when you create external predecessor or successor relationships with a project that is located in a Web folder.
Workaround
To work around this behavior, use either of the following methods:
  • Move the project from the Web folder to a location on your hard disk or on your network.
  • Instead of the Web folder path, use a valid drive letter and directory path, or a valid Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path (\\Server\Share) that points to the same location as the Web folder or FTP folder.
Status
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
