I just inherited a Project Server 2007 server from a person who left.
 
I need to know how I can get the Project server 2007 data from a Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007.
The collabration menu is disabled in Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007.

I have some user id and password information but do not know how to connect and get data from Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007.

Please let me know detailed steps.

thanks

Hi,

I assume the project server is installed and runs, and now you need to connect Micosoft Project to the server to access the projects? If so please follow these steps:
- start Microsoft Project
- goto the menu Tools..Enterprise Options..Microsoft Office Project Server Accounts
- click on "Add", enter a name for this account, e.g. "My server", enter the URL (something like "http://myserver/pwa") and set the option for "Set as default account"
- Leave the "use Windows user account" (most common setting, though I'm not sure what you're remark about user name and password relates to...?)
- After clicking "OK" please select the "Manually control connection state"
- Click "OK" again

Now restart Microsoft Project and you should get a dialog asking you where to connect with the new account preselected. Click OK and if the URL has been entered correctly AND you windows account has been setup in Project Server, you should connect to Project Server. You can then access the projects by the usual File..Open menu.

Hope this helps

Thomas
