MS Project data via Visual Basic
Posted on 2002-07-07
I'm expert at using Visual Basic to get MS Project data out of an MS Access file once the project is saved in MDB format, but now I'm trying to use VB to go directly to the project file.
I'm getting lots of stuff just fine (tasks, resources, etc.), but one thing I can't get is the project info. This is the stuff that in project you get by going to file >> properties >> summary
There is a VB function for the project object:
Function ProjectSummaryInfo([Project], [Title], [Subject], _
[Author], [Company], [Manager], [Keywords], [Comments], _
[Start], [Finish], [ScheduleFrom], [CurrentDate], [Calendar], _
[StatusDate], [Priority]) As Boolean
that works great to SET any of the listed values, but what I can't figure out is how do you GET the values. I know where they are in the MDB file, but can't find them in the MPP file itself.
