Importing Excell Worksheet into Project

Importing Excell Worksheet into Project

Importing Excell Worksheet into Project


I am looking to track manhours, and % completion for a particular job.  The contractor is installing electrical equipment and has a spreadsheet showing each item he is installing as a line item.  Each line item then has the conduit, wiring, and termination completion, and a projected manhour for each task.

I was wondering if there was a way to inport this spreadsheet into microsoft project in order to track the actual manhours and % completion vs what they have shown on their spreadsheet.

Is there a way to import this spreadsheet into microsoft project?  What would be the past way to track the individual parts of each task and the manhours and completion for the whole task?

RE: Importing Excell Worksheet into Project

I would say that I suspect Visual Basic macro to be the sole solution as I never heard/saw about this.

I know you can export to Excel for sure but I wouldn't bet you can easily import from it.
