Saving the Entire Project in a Database

Examine the options you have for saving the entire Project data set in other formats, namely the Microsoft Project Database format, the Microsoft Access Database format, and other ODBC database sources. All aspects of the Project document can be saved, including all the field data, calendars, views, filters, and format settings.

Note

When you create a file in one of these foreign formats, Microsoft Project creates many new tables and fields in the external database to hold copies of the data from its internal tables and fields. However, the table and field names are very different from the names you see in Project when you place fields in views or reports. To work with the data in these foreign formats, you need to read the document titled "Microsoft Project 2000 Database Format," which is saved in a file named ProjDB.HTM. This file is copied during installation into the 1033 folder under the folder where Project is installed. For example, in the standard installation, this document would be found in

C:\ProgramFiles\MicrosoftOffice\Office\1033\ProjDB.HTM

You can open the file in a browser or any word processor (such as Microsoft Word) that can work with HTML files.
