Exchanging Selected Parts of a Project with Other Formats

For some file formats, you are only allowed to store selected field values from a Project file. This is true for the Microsoft Excel format, the HTML format for Web browsers, and the text formats. In other instances, you simply may not want to store all the Project information. For example, a colleague might ask you to supply an Access database that records just the task names, scheduled work, and actual work for your project as a source to help that person estimate task work in a similar project.

When you save an entire project in a database, Microsoft Project automatically creates a standard set of tables in the database with standard Microsoft Project database field names. If you save only part of a project's data to a database, you will need to provide the name of the new or existing table(s) that will receive the data.
