Hi there,

So I'm having a hard time finding a snippet of VBA code, or any useful help file to assist me with my project.  This is the situation:

I have a MS project file, with all my tasks and such.  What i want the project to do, is whenever its opened, to connect to a MS access file to "check progress" by copying data from a specific table (the entire table) and assigning specific cells as tasks, in a specified "snags" section of my project.  I am looking for the required VBA code to do this.

So as the access database is updated on the users end, management can track to see how many 'snags' have been thus far opened, closed and remaining. (these data points are available on the table)  These snags must not copy over other tasks as they are not the final step in my project- so they must push other tasks down (and not replace them in Project)

Hopefully I have been clear in what I need your expert help in, if not, please ask and I will clarify!

PS- Anything is appreciated- however I am looking for a quick fix (snippets of code)

Thanks

-Nick

    If IsNull(TASK_UID) Or TASK_UID = 0 Then
        Dim i As Integer
        i = FindPos(pj, conn, rstTask)
        Set MyTask = pj.Tasks.Add(rstTask("Popis").Value, i + 1)

Thanks for this, but do you think you could give me a little bit of an explanation as to what your code is doing? I'm a rookie at VBA so anything will help. Thanks!
