    Does Assignment name mean Task Name?
    Does Date1 mean Start date for a task, and Date 2 mean finish date for a task?

    Try using the Task and Resource Pivot Table to get what you need.

    Hi,

    Yes assignment names mean tasks..and Date1..Date2 ...etc. means the date for which work is assigned. Say a resource X is assigned a task Y then for the next week...the output I would like to have is:

    Resource Task Work
    26- April 27-April 28-April .............and so on
    X Y 6h 5h 5h

    I am not sure, but I believe the Pivot table options are only available if you have Project server. I could not find exactly what you were looking for but if you go to Resource Usage view and open the Analysis toolbar, you can select Analyze Timescaled Data in Excel . Export the Work field and it gives you summarizing data similar to what you were requesting.

    Hi Gary,

    That is great! Could you tell me what versions of Project have pivot tables available, and how would I access that feature?

    Carla,

    The pivot table feature is available in earlier versions of project such as 98 and 2000 by using the export data feature. You can either use the export map and select to export to an excel pivot table or use the timescaled data wizard to get data to a pivot table. Project, itselft, can not create the pivot table as you already know. A third option for those that can program in access is to save project data as an Access Database, import the data into access and rebuild the data with queries and then analyze with a pivot table but that is just way too much work.
    Regards,

    Re: Export to Excel (MSP2002)

    Gary,

    Thank you for the clarification.

    That would have been my point, that the pivot table feature does not reside within Project, you have to export by whatever method the data from Project to Excel and I additionally thought the Analysis toolbar is an easy way to start sending data from Project ot Excel for analysis.

    I certainly agree that it would be too much work to go the Access direction. I generally find pivot tables easier to create from Excel data than from Access unless as you suggested you can program with Access aready.

    Carla
