Read TimePhasedData (TimeScaleValues) directly from Project Server using VSTO? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to read timephasedData from server using VSTO instead of PSI?  This is in MSP 2007

    I have new assignments added (not checked in) on Project Client, and for my test, I need to retrieve the data on the server and do a comparison.  But my calls to retrieve this data always seem to come from the client. 

    How can I read this server data using VSTO?

  • If you're investing much time in this (and it reads like you are) then you need to plan for easy upgrade to 2010 or later. In 2010 only the reporting db is supported for access, which in turn is only updated after a Publish. So, in 2007 create a View in SQL Server that gets the data you need and read from your code. After an upgrade to 2010 change the View to read from the Reporting db and you're done!

    VSTO is not needed, use OLEDB or .net direct. VSTO is only needed for talking to Office clients.
