VBA - Exporting Timeline Info from Excel to MS Project

Hi,

I have a tool I've developed in Excel that ends up building a particular 'timeline' out. Its columns look somewhat like the following:

ActivityID Description Duration StartDate EndDate

It builds out this 'timeline' using inputs gathered from the user in an excel userform, and then processes through VBA that includes a hardcoded 'template' for the timeline buildout.

I would love to be able to place a button on the excel worksheet that creates an MS Project File in the format I specify, using these columns. It would not supplement any existing macro in the workbook, but be a new one.

Any initial direction on code to use to get started would be helpful!

Thanks,
Barrett

Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.

Re: Excel VBA Request - Exporting Timeline Info from Excel to MS Project

Would anyone familiar with MS Office coding let me know if they think it would be easier to build cost that exports from Excel to MS Project, or instead build code to import into MS Project from Excel?
Thanks,
Barrett
