Linking to another project task as a dependency or predecessor & date roll up

How do I link to another project task as a predecessor or dependency? 

ie. I have Project X and need to know when task 100 from Project Y and task 200 from Project Z will finish. If I add Project Y and Project Z under Project X, then is there a danger of being able to update Project Y or Project Z tasks (even if by accident)?

Reason I ask is that I have inherited Project X and it does not have date roll up enabled. I would have gone ahead and enabled date roll up, but feared that it would then enable rollup or Project Y & Z also. 

Any help welcomed. Thanks.

Hi Ryan Hunter, using the Table View or the Gantt Chart you can create predecessors for tasks in different projects without putting them under the same project. You can find instructions on how to create them here and I'm attaching an example screenshot. Please let me know if this helps.

Hi Ryan,

I use the Gantt Chart to set predecessors with the same project, but if I need to make create a dependency from a task in a different project I copy the permalink and set this on on e of the projects tasks, I go to the icon that says  "Dependency" and copy de permalink either o the predecessor or successor area and then change if it is FS or SS.
