Exporting Duration/Effort To CSV Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

When exporting to CSV format is there any way to get duration/effort to export according to project settings for formatting?

Ideally I would like them to export as simply as a number, "432", for easy manipulation in a spreadsheet without having to parse/strip first.
This question was asked four years ago. Is there a way to export a csv with hours only. I keep getting 1w 2d 4h which is a pain to convert to hours.

Here's a trivial script that will emit CSV for the WBS Number, Time and Effort columns to the clipboard for the frontmost OmniPlan document:

property pWBSHeader : "WBS Number,Time,Effort

tell application "OmniPlan"
	set OutputStr to pWBSHeader
	set comma to ","
	repeat with ThisTask in (tasks of front document)
		tell ThisTask
			set OutputStr to OutputStr & outline number & comma & (duration / 3600) & comma & (effort / 3600) & return
		end tell
	end repeat
	tell application "Finder" to set clipboard to OutputStr
end tell
Time and Effort will be given as hours. Select those columns in your spreadsheet document and paste the new values in. Seems to work based on minimal testing with Numbers; YMMVBYKWTSA. Information on how to install and use scripts with Omni products can be found at
This worked very well, thank you.
