    Is there a way to copy and paste an object from Proj to Word?
    I can do this with Excel, but doesn't seem to work with Project.
    Any suggestions?
    Right now I print to both to PDF and insert using Adobe, but this is not
    perfect.
    Also tried inserting an image from a screen capture, but detail is not
    easily discernable.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated,
    Thanks,
    hj

    PS. forgive the cross-posts. Wasn't sure which ng would get me an answer
    quick!

  2. In Project, Use Edit, Copy Picture.
    Version 2003 also has a Wizard for this export

    there's a camera icon on the standard toolbar (the top one) ... you can take
    a "photo" of your Microsoft Project Gantt chart and use that in word or powerpoint

    PS: i always select the task rows and then when using the "camera" select
    the option of selected tasks.

    We can take a screen shot or the chart and then insert to Word.
    Or the other way is export it to an image and then insert to Word. There is a tip about exporting the Gantt Chart to image by using Virtual Printer at (xme.im/export-gantt-chart-image-or-pdf-microsoft-project)
    Hope that help.
