Toggling resources

Microsoft Project


  • 1. Linking data from Project to Excel
    How do I create links from individual cells (i.e. cost) in Project to cells in Excel. I tried the copy-and-paste method. This works, but the links keep breaking. (I wish you could just type "=" in excel and then select the cell to link to in Project - like linking cells within excel.) Thanks for helping out!
  • 2. Setup Question - "Editors" vs "Users"?
    We bought several licenses for Editors and Users. The Project Server manual talks about 5 different user roles, i.e. Administrator, Project Mgr, Resource Mgr, Team Member, and Viewer. I'm trying to figure out what editors and users actually is so I can know who to assign these licenses to in our company. The two license roles don't match any of the 5 manual roles. Help! -- James A
  • 3. product key location for picture manager
    i want to use the microsoft picture mangaer. i amd being asked for a product key. where can i find it. thanks
  • 4. Patch to read MS Project
    I've got MS Office 2007 but not Project. I've received a Project file but can't open it. Is there a patch I can use to open such files as read-only - I'll never want to use Project myself so don't want to buy it. Sorry if this is a much repeated question. Thanks
  • 5. Logic through re-scheduled tasks.
    I have a schedule that has been baselined; when I re-schedule, the links I have creating still remain attached to the baseline, how can I show the links flowing through the re-scheduled dates rather than through the baselines. Is this possible ? Thanks in advance Phil

As I assign the resource to the task, that source is displayed next to the 
task bar in the project schedule.
What I want to do is toggle this resources assignment on/off, meaning that 
at one point I want to see the tasks and their resources and the next view 
would be just a task.

Go to views menu, more views, make a copy of the gantt view (the default)
and call it what you want.
Apply that view.
Go to the format menu.
Choose barstyles
Select the barstyle with the big blue bar.
Click on the text tab in the bottom half
remove resource name from the barstyle.
Click OK

Now if you want to see names switch to gantt view, If you don't want to see
names switch to your new view.

3.Caps Lock toggle using Shift key

While messing around on my computer, I came across the selection of being 
able to turn off CAPS LOCK by pressing the SHIFT key, instead of re-pressing 
the Caps Lock key.  I thought it would be a good idea, but have determined 
that I do NOT like it.  Now, of course, I can't find where I made that 
selection.  I have Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 (?).   Any help????

5.Toggle macro for day / hours viewing

I want to set up a macro in Project to enable me to toggle (using something 
like Ctrl-T), the 'Work is entered in' field under Tools>Options>Schedule tab 
to switch between hours and days depending on what is currently displayed. ie 
if my view is currently in hours, it will change to days and vice versa. I 
can create a simple macro for a one way conversion and assign it to a hotkey 
but can't get the toggle to work.
