Microsoft Project data connection


I am using CR XI and Microsoft Project 2003. I am attempting to connect to a project .mpp file using the Microsoft Project OLE DB 11.0 Provider. If I put the path in the Data Source fill in and the name of the file, including the .mpp extension, in the Database fill in, I get the error message for failure to find the file, error # 80004005. If I type the full path and file name in the Database fill in box, the connection comes in with the name "Connection" and shows the project file tables list, but all of the tables contain the same fields which appear to be the properties for the file, not the project task information. How do I connect to a project file?
