Exporting Tasks and Resources from MS Project 2007 to MS Excel



Hi there,

I need to export the tasks and associated resource information to Excel but
I am having trouble modifying the following Macro (I'm not a coder!).
Essentially what I would like is to include the Resource Group and % Complete
fields in the export and retain text formatting.

I came across JackD's site and was able to modify some of it to include
start and end dates but I'm not able to include the additional fields I need.

I'd appreciate any help!
