Assistence with Microsoft project

How to create an MS project file. I have instructions, but the are confusing

Hi Comite,

Thanks for your query. Please check following Aapose.Tasks article link. Hopefully it would serve the purpose. Secondly, I’m also moving your query to related forum; Aspose.Tasks.

Please feel free to ask for any further assistance.

Best Regards,


Thank you for using Aspose.Tasks.

I would like to share with you that at present, Aspose.Tasks can create an MS Project file in XML format from scratch, and does supports creating the MPP file. However, you can create an empty MPP file using MS Project and then modify it in the same way as you would be creating an MS Project file. So, in order to work with an MS Project file, please follow the steps below:

  1. Create an empty MS Project file using MSP
  2. Read the file using Aspose.Tasks API
  3. Perform operations on the file as per your requirements
  4. Save the file back in the MPP format
For a detailed programming guide, please follow the Working with Projects section from our documentation. Please let us know if we can be of any help to you. We will try to assist you as soon as possible.
