Add new components to your project by referencing other projects. The addition of referenced projects creates a project hierarchy. When the Project loads a referenced project in a project hierarchy, it:

Runs startup shortcuts from the referenced project.
To reference a project:
On the Project tab, in the Environment section, click .
In the Add Reference dialog box, specify settings:
Referenced project location –– Click
Browse and navigate to the project
folder. Then, in the project folder, select the required project
Reference type –– If your project hierarchy has a well-defined root relative to your project root, for example, a folder under source control, click Relative. If the project you want to reference is in a location accessible to your computers, for example, a network drive, click Absolute.
Set a checkpoint to detect future changes –– To create a checkpoint, select the check box. To detect changes, you can compare the referenced project against this checkpoint.
Click Add. The Project creates a References view that displays the referenced project.
You can reference multiple projects in a hierarchical manner. In the References view, the Project displays the project reference hierarchy as a tree.
To view summary information about a referenced project, in the References tree, select the project.
To view files that belong to the referenced project, click .
To remove a referenced project from your project hierarchy, in the References tree,
