Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem as best as you can. Don't simply post "XYZ Isn't working". What is it you expected or wanted? What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi,

 

Is it possible to link PowerProject (v10/v11) to Excel, whether this is via VBA or an external 'middle' programme, if so is there some api's we can use?

Thanks

Hi Phil,

We've moved on a bit since this thread was written - now .NET has mostly replaced VBA.  There are still plenty of options for writing macros, or indeed full integrations with Powerproject via our API, but please call us directly to discuss which one is going to be best for you.

Thanks,

Ben @ Powerproject

Sorry to resurrect an old thread. Has anybody got a Library for VBA in Asta. I've tried using syntax similar to MSP, to no avail!

 

Cheers,

 

Phil

Hi Sanjay,

 

As Mike says you can copy and paste or you can write macros in vba. VBA is included in Powerproject (Tools - Macros - VBA Editor). You do need to know vba of course.

 

If you need any help please reply and I'll get someone to contact you

 

Regards

 

Andrew

Hi Sanjay

Why not go to the Asta Development website and search - or if you have a maintenance licence go to technical support.

Thanks Mike, I'm actually looking for an automated version (3rd party) is there some api's or developer documentation available?

Thanks

Hi Sanjay

One of the best points in PowerProject is that the data columns on the left are directly compatable with excell - so you can copy and paste back and forth.

I have not heard of any direct kind of hyperlink.

Best regards
