Project Control - MS Project Link

Project Control - MS Project Link

Project Control - MS Project Link

We are running MIMS under Citrix. I am looking for ways to download & upload project data between MIMS Project Control and MS Project 98 (Yes it's so I can manage both project costs and schedules without the need to manually build and maintain the project hierarchy in both products). The reference material isn't particularly helpful other than a vague comment to MSM080C Report EMB66AA.

Any suggestions?



RE: Project Control - MS Project Link

The only information I have to do this is via custom-built programs:

You could build a custom MSB program to download/upload the parent projects' WBS (subprojects, WO's, WT's) from MIMS to MS Project, and vv.  It makes sense to have one system the Master (MIMS Enterprise-wide), and MS Project for allocation of other project-related data to update MIMS.

Or you could build a connector script to download from MIMS to MS Project 98 (isn't there a sample in the Connector package?) via the Open Project function in MS Project.

RE: Project Control - MS Project Link

If you contact your Mincom Account Manager, they should be able to give details of a MIMS-MsProject interface using the Mincom Connector product. (My understanding is that some MIMS sites have a MIMS-MsProject interface using Mincom Connector to handle project scheduling, and a MIMS-MsExcel interface using Mincom Connector to handle project cost estimates).
