Import Time Phased Actual Cost from another system to Project Server 2007 using PSI RRS feed

  • Question

  • We essentially want to use the PSI to map a value from an existing external database table into the time phased actual cost of a task in MS Project Server 2007. This mapping at a high level would be accomplished by matching a Project ID, a unique task identifier, and a particular month/year between the external table and the identified related MS Project.  The value from the external table would then be inserted into the associated Actual Cost field in MS Project for that month/year.   In looking at past questions/answers on this topic on the forum it sounds like this can’t be done for “Cost Resource”.  My question is can you bring in these actuals using PSI to a task that doesn’t have any resources assigned to it  (basically a dummy task)? I’m wondering is this functionality of brining in actual by month to a task is only not possible for Cost Resource or just not possible at all?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
