  • 2. Note Field Archive??
    Hello again all, I have a task in a project that has 2 very loquacious people assigned to it. They're very good about documenting what they did during the hours in the "Note" field. However, they both tend to be TOO verbose... which brings me to the reason for this post. They've hit the 4000 character limit for the note field. I seem to recall a way to "clear" the note field without losing the data. A way to archive it, so I still have all notes, but they can add new ones without the 4000 limit imposing upon their ability to be... well... over-thorough. I've checked my books, MS Pro help, and MS online help. I haven't found it yet, but like I said I have that tingly feeling in the back of me head telling me I read something about this before. So I thought I'd post and see if any of you know if I'm crazy, or if it can be done. There's just SO MUCH material to poor through I think I missed it... Thanks to all involved with this newsgroup!! -Brian Stebbins Glasstech Inc.
  • 3. Expand/Collapse Not Working
    In just one file in Project 2000, the "-" next to summaries does not collapse the summary, and the "+", "-" and Show button is grayed out. Why? How can I get these features to work? Thanks!

    Is there a way to create a master schedule (only to view) from two separate schedules. Still allowing changes and updates on the originals and automatic updating on the master? I am a first time Project user, please help.
  • 5. Entry Table
    After I opened a new project, I tried to add column to the "Gantt" view (enterprise view). It's automatically created a new local table called "Entry". Does the "Entry" table have a special meaning? Is it different than other tables? How can I add column in a enterprise view (default view when creating a new project), and then save it in the local project ?

Hide Resource Name on Gantt Bars globally

Is there a way to hide the Resource Name that is displayed next to each Gantt 
bar? I know you can remove the name display on a bar-by-bar, individual 
basis, but is there a global setting that will "not" show resource names for 
the entire project?

Hi Steve,

Welcome to this Microsoft Project newsgroup :)

Try Format/Bar Styles... and in the Text tab, delete the entry for Resource 
Names from the "right" cell.

FAQs, companion products and other useful Project information can be seen at 
this web address:  http://www.**--****.com/ 

Hope this helps - please let us know how you get on :)

Yes. Select Format, Bar Styles and remove Resource Names from critical and 
noncritical bars. Better yet create separate Views for each report you need 
to produce rather than formatting and re-formatting the same View.

1.Ability to change Gantt Bar color based on Resource Name

Is there a way to customize project to display different color bars in Gantt 
based on the resource classification (name)

2.Task Summary view: Resource names above gantt bar?

How do I get the resource names to show above the bar in the task summary 
gantt chart view? They appear for all the sub-tasks when summary task filter 
is not applied, but not on the sumary task bar. 

I want to print out a task summarygantt chart view, but I need to see all 
the resources that are assigned to a particular task summary (we are a small 
organization, there are no more than 6 resources assigned to any task). The 
resource name column is also blank at the summary level.

I have tried the gantt chart wizard, but nothing happens in the summary view.

3.Howto change bar color globally for a resource

Hi all,

I'm using MS Project Pro 2002 and want to know if I can do something.
I've got a schedule layed out for a project with resources assigned to
tasks. Is it possible to give a resource (my team members) a
particular bar color so when they look at a project they can
immediately see what tasks are theirs? I can set the bar colors/styles
on a bar by bar basis, but this is a pain. What I'd like is to set a
bar color/style for each resource so when I move resources around, the
bar color/styles follow it. Know what I mean?

Thanks in advance for your help,
Doug Farrell

4.Resource Name Display on Gantt Bars

I have selected to display Resource Names as Gantt Bar 
Text.  However, as my resources are loaded (units) at 85%, 
when the resource name is displayed, the percentage is 
also displayed in brackets next to the resource name (i.e. 
John Doe [85%]).  Is there a way to display the resource 
name w/o the percentage (i.e. John Doe) and maintain the 
85% loading (unit) for the resource?

5.HowDoI hide text under a gantt bar when its rolled up in Project

roll up the subtasks.  I want to display the text for the sub task but NOT 
display text in the rolled up gantt bar.  Any ideas?
