Lesson 1.15. Printing the Current View as a Report

Figure 1-16. The first step in printing the current view as a report.


If you thought printing a view was easy, wait until you try printing the current view as a report. Making its debut in Project 2003, the "Print current view as a report" option is one of the best things to come along since sliced bread! Well, maybe not, but it is definitely worth checking out.

Located in the Report task pane of the Project Guide, the "Print current view as a report" option acts as a wizard, guiding you through each and every step of printing the current view as a report. Let's get acquainted with this brand-new option!

  1. Open the view you want to print.

    In this case, we'll be using Gantt Chart view, so you don't have to open a new view.

  2. Click the Report list arrow on the Project Guide toolbar and select Print current view as a report from the list.


    Tip: To view or hide the Project Guide toolbar, select View

  3. Click the Save and go to Step 2 link at the bottom of the task pane.

    Step 2 of the wizard appears. Go ahead and work your way through the next two steps in the wizard, familiarizing yourself with the various options offered.

  4. Click the Print button when you've finished working through all four steps.

    The Print dialog box appears. You can also click the Print Preview button to see how the report will be printed.

    We aren't going to be printing anything in this lesson, so...

  5. Close the dialog box and the Project Guide task pane.
