    Do you not get the Insert Object window shown below when you hit the "Insert Object" icon?

    If you do not then there is a problem with your version of Project. What is your version number (File > Help > "additional version and copyright information" in the middle on the right side of the screen)? It should be 14.0.7176.5000. If you do not have that version, run Windows Update.

    If your version of Project is fully updated, try a repair or Project through the Windows Control Panel

    Hope this helps.

  • Vishwas",

    How big is the Excel Worksheet? Does it work if you insert a simple test worksheet?

    What version of Excel? What version of Project?

    But you didn't answer my first question. How big is the Excel Worksheet (i.e. rows, columns)?

    I don't have Excel 2013 so I don't know if there is an incompatibility with Project 2010. Try saving the Excel file in an earlier format and then try the import.

  • Sir,

    There is not any select or browse option to import the Excel, it shows only a message "There was a problem inserting the object" when i first click on "Task information> notes>insert object ".
