How to: View the Microsoft Project Column Mappings

You can view the Microsoft Project column mappings. The mappings identify to which column each field in Team Foundation maps. This information is useful if you work with both Microsoft Project and Team Explorer and must understand where published field data appears in Team Explorer. This information is also useful if you plan to modify the field mappings and must see the current mappings.

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Readers group or have the View Project-level information permissions set to Allow. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.
