Issue/Introduction

Task Dependencies are not automatically saved on local MPP files using the MSP New Driver.  

Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Create a new project in PPM
2. Add two tasks (T1 and T2)
3. Make T1 be a predecessor of T2 in PPM
4. Export to MSP using the New driver. The dependencies show.
5. Close out of MSP.
6. Go to My Documents
7. Open the project mpp 

Expected Results: t2 still shows t1 as its predecessor.
Actual Results: t2 has no predecessors.

Cause

Caused by DE33700

Environment

CA PPM 14.4, 15.1, 15.2

Resolution

DE33700 has been fixed on CA PPM 15.3. 

Workaround: Manually click on the MSP save icon (File > Save) and this updates the local mpp file with the predecessors.
