  • 1. Project Pro 2010 with Project Server 2007
    I recently upgraded to Project Pro 2010. However, the Project Server is running 2007. I can open local project files fine, but when I try to open a project on the server I receive this error. "No permissions to read Project Server Enterprise Global file". Is Project Pro 2010 compatible with Project Server 2007? If so, how do I resolve this error? Thanks. -- Rick

  • 4. External dependency
    Hi, In relation to the subject -Creating Dependencies Between Projects- I read the following in the MSP Help files: "project schedule is not updated automatically when external dependencies change" Also: "To selectively accept changes to external predecessors, in the Task column, select each external predecessor or successor that has changes that you want to accept, and then click Accept". My question is that even when the (Automatically accept new external data) box under Tools>Options>View tab> is checked off, still the dependant task in my project plan is updated automatically, why...? I use Project std 2007, Any idea please, thanks in advance
  • 5. date formulas
    First I appreciate all of the tips I have picked up here along the way...been a lurker for quite some time. Now the real deal, I'm trying to write a formula to generate a day calculation based on the finish date of a task and the start date of "task 1". Basically, imagine task one as being a contract award date in its finish field and I want all of the subsequent tasks to calculate their finish dates into the number of days since task ones finish...a "days after contract award" field basically Any help Thanks, Mike

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?
