Project managers often share Project 2007 data with other applications, such as Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Outlook. When importing and exporting information in this way, the information must first be sorted, filtered, and grouped to customize the information's appearance. Information also needs to be timely – actual work performed, actual start and finish dates, and actual costs must all be updated. This course outlines the basics of importing and exporting, sorting, filtering, and grouping information to meet a project's needs. It also discusses creating and sharing resource pools in a multi-project environment, how to manage the efficient use of limited resources to keep multiple projects on schedule, and how to create task dependencies across multiple projects.

Target Audience
Business managers, project managers, planners, and team members who want to track and manage project tasks, costs, and resources; candidates for Microsoft User Specialist certification; anyone wishing to gain a basic understanding of Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007; end users seeking competence in Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007.
