Goal: Distribute project information in printed format

Applies to
Microsoft Office Project 2003
Microsoft Office Project Server 2003
Microsoft Project 2000 and 2002

If you have changed tasks, resources, or assignments, you can distribute printed copies of the most current project information to stakeholders or team members. You can display just the task (task: An activity that has a beginning and an end. Project plans are made up of tasks.) or resource (resources: The people, equipment, and material that are used to complete tasks in a project.) information that you want and format it to create professional results with every printout.

 Tip   This article is part of a series of articles that describe a broad set of project management activities. We call these activities "goals" because they are organized around the project management life cycle: Build a plan, track and manage a project, and close a project. The project life cycle is outlined in The Project Map, where you can find a link to an article about each project management goal. Most of the articles include links to supporting information or procedures that you perform in Project or Project Server. These "goal" articles were designed to help you not only use Project but also better understand project management.
