Thanks Annette and Gregory for suggesting to convert the Project file to PDF. I think that will solve my problem.

(Why didn't I think of it!?)

Thanks again,
Stan

2. Maybe too obvious to mention: if you want people to see a Gant chart
report, a screen print or .pdf of the report can be inserted in the Word
document.

Subject: Embedding MS Project file into MS Word

Hello,

My current project requires me to take content created in a variety of
file formats, and compile all the content in one Word document.

I've tried to embed an MS Project file into Word (as an icon). This
solution fails because of a known bug:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2661092

This support article suggests using a "Packager object class" instead.

I'm not sure what a "Packager object class" is, but assume it's a
programming solution...

1. Can anyone explain how I can embed an MS Project file into Word
using the Packager object class?

2. Can anyone suggest an alternative way to present MS Project content
in a Word document?

Thanks,
Stan
