MS Project Exported in Excel format issue


As I work in MS Project, and export data to Excel, thru mapping, I seem to be missing on:

1) Exporting Task Name - I cannot find proper field name to map
2) The Start and Finish dates exported don't allow me change their format
3) Assignment Column has value only 'No'

As Is export looks like this: msp-export-sample.pngFor the date columns, choose a date format (in MSP) that is yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm OR MM-dd-yyyyy hh:mm OR dd-MM-yyyy hh:mm depending on the "native" date style you use in Excel. The date format used is a string because of the month names.The column that has the resource in a coma seperated list is called (from memory) "Resources".

Please note I no longer have MSP to refer to so i can't offer much more detail.

nb: if you don't export the MSP row numbers how will the predecessor references be useful? (the do not align to Excel's row numbers)

Got it.

I also got the answer that while exporting if I choose buttons "base on table", and then select "Entry", I get my answer on ID, Task Name and even Resource assignment.

Besides, the above help should be really good.
