Building Excel reports from Project Server 2013 OData Services


The Relentless FrontEnd - Aackose Lal's Blog

This is quick walkthrough to showcase how you could build powerful reports from Project Server data online, in a jiffy.

I am using the Project Online Subscription from Office 365. However, this should work with your on-premise Project Server 2013 setup as well. So no worries…Interestingly this technique can be extended to any other data source…let’s say getting all your bug reports from Team Foundation Server to Excel, getting the Northwind Products table from an OData source online etc.

Without much adieu let me start… just 3 Steps

Step 1: Copy the OData Connection file URL from Project Online, under Data Connections library in the ProjectBICenter. You can find it in the following URL:

/sites/pwa/ProjectBICenter/Data%20Connections/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2Fsites%2Fpwa%2FProjectBICenter%2FData%20Connections%2FEnglish%20%28United%20States%29&FolderCTID=0x012000E9798414DD31E84AB759BED87428492E&View=%7B17A6948A-A122-4B2E-9398-FC156E6BE875%7D&InitialTabId=Ribbon%2ERead&VisibilityContext=WSSTabPersistence
