Remarks

If an argument is omitted, the default value is specified by the setting on the Display tab of the Project Options dialog box. The UseOMIDs default value is the Use internal IDs option on the Advanced tab.

Note The Project Options dialog box does not include settings for the Project Guide, which is deprecated in Project. Project Guide options can only be set programmatically, for using custom project guides. Instead of creating new project guide content, developers should create task pane apps.

Using the OptionsInterfaceEx method with no arguments displays the Project Options dialog box with the General tab selected. The OptionsInterfaceEx method is not available when a report view is active.
