Creating a reflection allows you to make a copy of a project known as a reflection. Once a reflection has been created, you can make changes to the reflection as needed to explore alternative project scenarios. Then, you can merge these updates to the original project, allowing you to keep active project data intact. This topic assumes that you have already created a reflection, you have made changes to the reflection and are ready to either preview and/or merge selected changes into the source project.
Begin by previewing the changes.
Next, choose changes from the reflection to merge into the source project. There are two ways the changes can be viewed, or grouped, in the Preview Changes to Project dialog box: by subject area or by activity. The default is by activity. When you view the changes by activity, check boxes appear in the Merge column for activity rows. This allows you to select which activities to merge into the source project.
Under Prior to merging, mark the appropriate check box.
Under After merging, mark the appropriate check box.
If for whatever reason, you decide not to merge the changes in the Reflection into the Source project, click Cancel and no changes will be made to the source project.
Otherwise, click Merge Changes to merge the changes into the source project.
