Default Problem Uploading Excel to Replace Existing Data

Hi there,



Need some help, I have a master microsoft project with numerous subprojects linked to it. When I export the master to excel, do my INDEX/MATCH, and then re-upload using the merge mapping tool my new data goes to the end of my project rather than replace the existing. I am even using the unique ID mast my merge key and it still doesn't work. Can anyone help with what I am doing wrong?

Thanks

you probably have to operate on the sub plans independently. What I suspect is happening is that when you copy the data back into the master it is doing precisely that - copying it into the open plan which is the master plan. If you want to copy the data into the sub plans you need to have them open and copy into them.
It maybe possible to do this from within the master by copying only the data for each sub plan into the specific "section" (i.e. plan) in the master document.
