Exporting to Project RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1294799626 posted


    I was wondering if anyone knew how I can export info to MS Project. I can export as an XML file and import it into Project, but i'd rather try and have a direct route there.

    1    Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-project";
     Doesn't work as it ends up like a mpp file, and I was exporting as an XML. Any pointers?

    Thanks all.

    edit: Installing Office on the server is not an option.

     I've read that a couple times and it doesn't seem to even come close to answering any questions.

    I'm trying to export into a ms project readable file from inside the asp.net project. I cannot install any office products or dlls onto the server.
