.mpd File Extension

Developer: Microsoft Corporation
File type: Microsoft Project Database File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .mpd. Files with the file extension .mpd can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .mpd files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .mpd file?

Files in the .mpd extension are called database files, and these MPD files are used as Microsoft Project database files. This file format was developed by Microsoft and allows users to store project data in a Microsoft Access-compliant format. These .mpd files can be opened by Microsoft Windows users with the Microsoft Project 2010 software and the K-SOL Project Reader application. The Microsoft project program has two packages, namely Project Professional and Project Standard. Both packages offer 32-bit and 64-bit encoding options for supporting several projects. To save a project in the Microsoft Project database format, click “File”, then “Save as”. Next, choose “Project database” from the options, then type a name in the “file name” field, and click “Save”. When the Export Wizard of the software opens, click “Next”. Type a name for the project file and click “Finish”. Users can also save multiple projects in one MPD project database file. This software also features an auto filter data function for its columns. To minimize the size of the database project, it is recommended to only save the currently loaded project.

how to open a .mpd file?

Launch a .mpd file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .mpd file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .mpd files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .mpd file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .mpd file will open the correct application.

Microsoft Project 2010

Microsoft Project 2010

Microsoft Project, commonly abbreviated as MSP, MSOP or WinProj, is a project management software program, created and sold by Microsoft, which is intended to support a project manager in developing plans, managing budget, analyzing workloads, assigning resources to tasks and tracking progress. MS Project was the company's third Microsoft Windows-based application, and within a couple of years from its release, it became the dominant PC-based project management software. Microsoft Project 95 was the first to use common Office menus. Although branded as a member of the Microsoft Office family, it never has been included in any of the Office suites, like Visio. It is available presently in two editions, Standard and Professional; both editions are available either as 32 or 64bit options. MS Project's owned file format is .mpp. Microsoft Project and Microsoft Project Server are the foundations of the Microsoft Office Enterprise Project Management (EPM) product. Microsoft Project 2010 features the Ribbon user interface.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .mpd files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .mpd. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
