Exchanging Selected Parts of a Project with Other Formats

For some file formats, you are allowed to store only selected field values from a Project file. This is true for the Microsoft Excel format, the HTML format, and the text formats. In other instances, you simply might not want to save all of a project's information. For example, a colleague might ask you to provide an Access database that records just the task names, scheduled work, and actual work for a project, so that she can help 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 need to provide the name of the new or existing table(s) that will receive the data.
