Question:  ‘This was wonderful information.  Thank you.  The statement was made that:  “The reporting database will pull some of the standard sharepoint items from the project workspace” (such as risk, issues and deliverables). 

I’m currently trying to access SharePoint and combine with Project data into one report.  Can you tell me how to access the SharePoint data in reporting database please.’

 

Response:  Great to hear that you enjoyed our webcast and got value from it.  Thank you.  Please see the screen shot and links below that will get you started.  Let us know if there is anything the MS PROJECT NOW! can assist you with.
