the most commonly used fields are present and the fields are already recognized and mapped in Microsoft Project. All you have to do is open the Excel file and make a couple of choices, and the data is imported into your project plan.
One template is designed just for task information being imported into the default Entry table of the Gantt Chart. Another template allows for more detailed project information, including resources and assignments.
If a team member or other stakeholder has created project information in Excel without using one of these templates, never fear. You can still import an Excel workbook into Microsoft Project the "old way."
