Defining Import/Export Map HTML Options

Now that you have created your first HTML document from Microsoft Project, let's examine some of the other available options you can choose when exporting your Project:

  1. Open a plan in Microsoft Project, and select F ile, Save As Web Page.

  2. From the Save As dialog box, navigate to the directory in which you want to save the document.

  3. Type the name of the HTML document in the File Name field.

  4. Click the Save button, and the Export Format dialog box will open (see Figure 14.12).

    Figure 14.12. The Export Format dialog box allows you to select the Import/Export map on which you want to base your HTML document.

  5. From the Import/Export Map to Use for Exporting list box, select the Task Schedule Map used in the previous example and click the Edit button. The Define Import/Export Map dialog box will display.

    Note

    If you prefer to keep your original map intact, you can click the Copy button to make an exact copy of your first map.


  6. The Export Header Row option on the Define Import/Export Map dialog box will export the HTML file field names to the first row of the table in your HTML document (see Figure 14.13). If you do not check this option, the first row of the table will contain the actual data (see Figure 14.14).

    Figure 14.13. This figure shows the HTML document displayed with the task field names in the first row of the table (for example, Task ID, Task Name, and so on) because the Export Header Row option was checked in the Define Import/Export Map dialog box.

    Figure 14.14. This figure shows the HTML document displayed without the task field names in the first row of the table because the Export Header Row option was not checked in the Define Import/Export Map dialog box.

  7. If you want to include the resources assigned to each task directly below the task row in your HTML document, check the I nclude Assignment Rows in Output option in the Define Import/Export Map dialog box. Figure 14.15 shows the results of selecting this option as displayed in Internet Explorer 5.0.

    Figure 14.15. The task table in your HTML document displayed with resource assignments below each task.

  8. Microsoft Project includes several HTML templates on which you can base your HTML document. These templates contain formatting and other information that determine how your document will display in your Web browser.

    The Base Export on HTML Template option in the Define Import/Export Map dialog box allows you to select the HTML template on which you want to base your HTML document. To select a template for your HTML document, check the Base Export on HTML Template option. Then, click the Browse button to select the template you want to use for your HTML document. These templates are typically stored in the Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\1033\Microsoft Project Web directory on your computer.

  9. After you have selected the appropriate options in the Define Import/Export Map dialog box, click OK, and the Export Format dialog box will display. Click the Save button, and your project will be saved as an HTML document.
