Accessing Projects from Other Ofﬁce Programs
Entourage is the place to set up your projects, but it’s not the only Ofﬁce program
that can access and modify projects. You can view your projects from Word, Excel,
and PowerPoint as well. Here are the ways:
• Project Gallery. You can access projects from the Project Gallery (which opens
when you launch Word, Excel, or PowerPoint). Click the Project tab, select your
project and click Open. You can also double-click any of the project ﬁles displayed
in the Projects Gallery, or select the ﬁle and then click Open. If the Project Gallery
isn’t visible, choose File→Project Gallery.
You can also open the Project Center from the other programs in
Ofﬁce 2004. To do so just click Tools→Project Palette, or, if the Tool-
box is open, click the briefcase button at its upper right. This panel
provides a capsule view of the items in your project that you’re most
likely to need at your ﬁngertips, like today’s schedule, currently due
tasks, and recent email messages. (For more detail, see page 667.)
The Projects Palette can show only one project at a time; choose from
the pop-up menu at the top to choose among them. Here, the project
is called “Falklands.”
Clicking the Go to Project Center button at the bottom of the Projects
Palette opens the main Project Center window shown in Figure 10-21.
