I am using Coldfusion and have an Oracle database that I want to pull data from and feed it into an MS Project file.  I wonder if it is possible to do this, and if so how?  I want MS Project displayed in the browser window?

Thanks.

ColdFusion cannot do this directly.  You may want to look into using COM to accomplish this (not sure if Microsoft Project has a COM interface), but if you haven't done any COM programming before, there will be quite a learning curve.
Might want to checkout the MS Project Resource Kit as an alternative
