I definitely agree with Jeff on Project Online. They are more or less the same product but online is much easier as you don’t have to install and support the server software. Online uses subscription pricing vs. Project Server price per item (server app and each user).

Also know that even though Online is easier it still requires setup and configuration, and can be daunting for someone who isn’t familiar. Most will tell you that you need at least some help from a consultant. Another though if you are only looking at simple reporting is to combine them in a project desktop and report from there.
1. Open all projects
2. Select View/New Window, select the projects and the view you want to use.
You need to know a bit about using Project, but you can customize a view to show only selected tasks or summary tasks on the view. You can also combine them in a Project report. Understand that the reporting capabilities are not what you can get from Project Online/Server and it is single user, but will be a lot simpler to get going. It all depends on how much you need vs. how much you spend on $’s and effort. Good luck…
