Chapter 20. Copying, Pasting, and Insert... > Copying Selected Data Between Applic...

Copying Selected Data Between Applications

In the preceding chapter you learned to export and import Project data in other file formats using Project's File Open and Save commands. You learned to exchange whole projects and to use Import/Export maps to work with selected blocks of data. In this chapter you will learn how to exchange individual field values as well as objects between files using the Copy and Paste commands and the Insert Object command. Both data that you paste into Project and objects that you insert into Project can often be linked to the original source to enable you to update the Project document to show the most current values in the source file.

Note

Using Copy and Paste is the only easily accessible way to copy Project's timephased data into other applications. Import/Export maps don't handle timephased data and Project's timephased reports can only be sent to the printer or viewed onscreen in Project. See the section "Placing Project Objects into Other Applications" for the steps to accomplish this.
