      Does anyone know if you can include the project status date to a report in MsProject? This would be helpful information to be able to automatically include in a custom status report.
      Thanks in advance.

      David, best I can tell you in a quick look is to use a custom date field and have it equal to the Project Status date [Status Date]. Not sure you can retrieve it otherwise within Project. You can get it within Project Online or Project Server from the database.

      Maybe someone has a shortcut. Hope that helps.

      Thanks Larry. I will look at trying that. I already looked into Project Online, to see if there were any enterprise options.

      If you want to show today’s date in the Gantt chart area, you can adjust the gridlines.
      Right click on the Gantt Chart; select Gridlines -> Current Date

      For “Visual Reports” (the pivot table/chart exports to Excel), then I think Larry’s already answered. You’ve got to get the status date into the task records through a custom field.

      Inside MSProject, the Project Status Date is included among the “General:” fields that can added to Headers and Footers in the page setup dialog. That dialog is available for Reports as well as Views/layouts.
