  • 1. Flowchart for setting up Project 2003 Pro and PWA
    Hi, Are there general guidelines or a flowchart for setting up Project 2003 Pro Enterprise option? I'm particularly interested in knowing the steps that are required to configure the software after the SQL Server, PWA and Pro have been installed. For example Setup user accounts to access Pro Configure PWA Setup Resource Pool Define Outline codes RBS Setup Global template .... I purchased 3 books thus far, but it seems that the books describe the functionality, not the order to implement the functionality. I understand that certain steps are logical, but it would be nice to have a complete list containing the steps and whether or not the steps are mandatory or not. thx for your help Paul

  • 3. Wrap a column heading?
    In MSP 2000, is there a way to wrap the column title? I have several columns that the title is longer than any data in the column. If I can reduce the column by wrapping the title (have it on multiple lines) I can accomplish what I want to do. Thanks!
  • 4. NonWorking time for a resource affecting standard calendar
    I'm in Project 2000. I know - upgrade - but I can't do that right now. Here's my problem: when I set non-working time for a resource, Project sets the same non-working time for the Standard calendar - for all resources. Maybe related: In the For: dropdown on the Change Working Time dialog, I only see some of my resources listed. So, to set working time, I am using the Resource Information dialog, which I get to by right clicking a resource name in the Resource Usage view. Any help would be appreciated. My next move is to create "vacation" tasks for each of my resources. Please save me from this stupidity!
  • 5. Help with a corrupt Project (2000) file
    Hi - Can someone help me to recover a Project file that I have created. Whilst using Dialup networking MSProject crashed and now when I try to open the file it says the format is not recognized. The file still has a size of 186kb so still holds some information?! I have tried saving it to a new name and copying it to my local drive. I have also tried to import it - but no luck. Can anyone help as I don't want to have to re-do the plan! thanks Jon

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

When I display text under the gantt bar, all of the text gets jumbled when I 
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?
