Why can't I save my project to a database server?

In Microsoft Office Project 2007, you cannot save projects by using Open Database Connectivity (ODBC). This includes saving your project to an Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server database. This also includes saving to a server as a Microsoft Office Project database (MPD file format) or a Microsoft Office Access database (MDB file format), as both of these formats use ODBC as the underlying technology. We recommend saving the project as an XML file if you need to read and write project data outside of Office Project 2007.
