The mpd file extension is mainly associated with Microsoft Project, a project management software program developed and sold by Microsoft Corporation. The .mpd files contain project data stored in a Microsoft Access-compliant format.

The mpd files were used to save and load entire projects in a relational records-based database format.

A database format used by MS Project for storing entire projects. This format uses the mpd extension. You cannot save to the MPD format using Project 2010, but you can open projects that are stored in MPD files.

The mpd files cannot be saved by Microsoft Project 2007, however already existing mpd files may still be used as a basis for a new project.
