Chapter 18. Copying, Pasting, and Insert... > Copying Selected Data Between Applic...

Copying Selected Data Between Applications

In Chapter 17, “Exporting and Importing Data with Other File Formats,” you learned to export and import Project data in other file formats, using Project’s 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

Unless you are very competent using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) to write macros that send Project data to other applications, you will find that using Copy and Paste is the only easy 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.
