    saving Project as a Databases (2000)

    Can anyone give me an example of why I would want do this?

    I have to think up a scenario for a training session - I often import export from excel, but the database facility just looks totally confusing to me!

    Many thanks

    Re: saving Project as a Databases (2000)

    You would save project as a database when you want to be able to export project data to other applications. This used to be the same as saving project as a .mpx file. The old .mpx file was compatible (somewhat) with other scheduling apps such as primavera.

    As you can't access the MS Project tables directly via, say ODBC (at least I can't), you would save the project file as a database so you could access the table structure / data via Access, Excel, or other apps.
