Sometimes we need to export Project Central content to excel to create a simple report with some comments, but usually we encounter a problem, when we try to do this export to excel we receive a message bellow:

The ActiveX control on which this feature depends could not be created. Because of this error, you can only copy the XML data to the Clipboard. Do you want to continue?”

To solve this problem we need to include Project Server as a trusted site and enable an activeX control.

Let's do it.  

  1. Add Project Server PWA web site as a trusted site on Internet Explorer;
  2. Edit trusted sites custom level security;
  3. Find option: “Initiate and script ActiveX control not marked as safe for scripting”
  4. Set this option to "Prompt"

Now you will be able to export Project Central content to Excel.
