I'm new to programming in Project (and new to Project in general,
too), and am hoping one of you Project gurus out there can help me.
I have an MS Project file which needs to export certain tasks
(selected by the user) to Excel. I have created code that works and
does what I need, and have created a custom button on the toolbar to
access the code/macro. However, when I send the Project file to any
other user, they are unable to see the custom button I have created.
The user can run the macro I wrote by going into Tools --> Macros -->
Macros, but they just can't see the button I created to bypass this
After searching the newsgroups, I have tried several different things
so far, but none of them work:
1) Right-click on blank area in toolbar, and then go to Customize.
Select "All Macros" from Categories, and then selected my macro from
the Commands list and drag it to an empty space on the toolbar.
2) Created a custom toolbar by going to View --> Toolbars -->
Customize, and clicking New.... Then I added the custom button to the
toolbar as in #1.
3) Under Tools --> Organizer, on the Modules tab, I have verified that
the module that contains my code exists in both the 'Global.MPT' file
and the 'ProjectPlan.mpp' file.
4) Under Tools --> Organizer, on the toolbars tab, I have verified
that the custom toolbar I created (#2 above) exists in both the
'Global.MPT' file and the 'ProjectPlan.mpp' file.
Can anyone think of something or some step that I am missing? I am
really stumped on this one, and unfortunately have no way to test each
new thing I try with my client (who is in another country), except for
continuing to send them a new file each time and ask, "Does this one
Thank you very much in advance for any input you may be able to
