Apologies that this is so late; my email has been down for more than a week.
One respondent said that .MPP is the extension for Microsoft Project files.
I found that it is also a CAD drawing file format.
For those interested in a useful information source, I found the above
tidbit at www.whatis.com. One of the links on the front page is a list of
file formats--they title it "Every file format in the world." This site also
keeps up-to-date definitions of thousands of technical terms. I have found
it to be quite useful.
