acces to MS-Project for reports

Hello!
How to make reports of resource-plan in MS-project
accessible even if you don't have MS-project installed?

Can you use ODBC from Access for this?
Or Perl, or something else?

Hi
See http://www.able-consulting.com/ADO_Conn.htm (which is a useful
list of all connection strings known to man, including ODBC) for ways
to connect to project, I'm afraid I don't know if you can use any
these without project installed though I doubt it. However commercial
packages can import from project and the files are now XML so the
knowhow must be around.

Easy? Not very, but if you use outlook you can use automation to read
through the texts while keeping track of who sent what mail. This
would work in Access or Excel but would require some programming.
See http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=201096 or for other versions of
outlook as referred to there.

not sure about MS Project reading Access data, but I know Access can
read/write/modify project data. You just need a reference to Project
set. (Or rewrite to use late binding.) There's an example of Project
automation from Access (yes, I realize this doesn't directly answer
your question) in Scott Barker's "Access 2000 Power Programming" from
Sybex.
