How do I get a list of start times in MS Project?

My Gantt chart rocks. All tasks are entered, coded, divided, etc... but I want a list of tasks as they have been scheduled:

Tuesday 2:30pm Task 1 (1 Hour)
Tuesday 3:30pm Task 2 (4 Hours)
Wednesday 8:00am Task 2 (Continued)
Wednesday 11:00am Task 3

....


Etc...

How do I get this?

I am using Office Project 2007.

You could probably get a tool like the one described here:
http://docs.groove.net/htmldocs/guide/tools/business/grooveprojecttoolset/projecttracking/project_microsoft3x.htm
or
use Office Timesheets
http://www.officetimesheets.com/products/microsoft_project_interface.aspx

Now a simple workaround would be to export tasks into Excel as described here:

and then have a go at Excel, where it is easier to get what you want.

Hi,

I guess you have your schedule structured i.e. summary tasks, normal tasks and milestones? Then you need to filter out the summary tasks first by creating and applying a new filter with "Summary" "equals" "No".
After you filtered on the non-summary tasks you can simply sort by the start date column and get all tasks in the desired order.

Is this what you are looking for?

Regards

Thomas

Not quite. What I want is a start day and time for each task (and preferrably... how long I should spend on it.)

For example, Friday (Today) has an odd set of working hours 10-12, then 1-4pm. I also have 5 tasks that fall within that time frame. The first one will consume 10-12 and the 1-1:30. The next 3 fit neatly into the time left, and the last one is a 1.5 hour task that starts at 4:30 (so it iwll roll over into the first hour of Monday).

I want a spreadsheet or list that tells me the start times and durations of each task so I know exactly what's going on.

I can kind of get this is I zoom in the gannt chart, but that's more analog...

I want:

Task 1: Start: 10am End: 12pm
Task 1: Start 12:00pm End :12:30
Task 2: Start 12:30 End:2:30
Task 3: Start 2:30 End: 3:00
Task 4: Start 3:00 End 4:30
Task 5: Start 4:30 End 5:00 (Continued on next day)

Day 2:
Task 5: Start 8:00 End....
