MSP2007 Custom Report Needed

MSP2007 Custom Report Needed

MSP2007 Custom Report Needed

What I need:
I have a Text field with a custom formula that populates with specific text names that I've specified.  All I need now is a report that allows me to pick and choose particular fields and most importantly provides me a count for each of the formulated "text names" I have in the formula.

Why I need it:
We would like to use our scheduling software (MSP07) to provide upper management with a count of Major Deliverables and Minor Deliverables and with a count of how many finished On-Time, Late, Early or Not Completed.  The aforementioned Variance Types are in a formula in a Text field and it works off of a couple of other formulas and a filter I have setup but I cannot figure out using either Custom Reports or Visual Reports how to make this in MSP.  I'd rather not have to export to Excel to do this.

Detail Specifics:
All my formulas are working in MSP right now, simply need to provide a click and print/email report out of MSP that provides a high level snapshot of how various projects are doing.  I do NOT need any cost or resource data, we use other software programs for that, just basic schedule data and specifically a count of the different types of the (4) text names the formula results contain.

Thanks in advance for any tips.

RE: MSP2007 Custom Report Needed

Well I was hoping for a reply from some experts, but it's a bit slow in here so I bought a good book, VBA PROGRAMMING FOR MICROSOFT OFFICE PROJECT and would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn how to do some custom stuff within MSP.  I have not figured out what I'm trying to do as of yet, so if anyone can still help me it will be greatly appreicated.
