  • 2. Caching an ODBC Password
    Hi Folks, I am successfully using an SQL DataStore via ODBC, but every time you access a resource to open it allways asks for the password. Does anyone know how I can prevent this happening ? Thanks In Advance !!!
  • 3. Material Cost Input and Calculation
    Our Material Cost View is not acting consistently and am wondering if anyone knows what the reason and/or fix might be. In some instances it is working as desired where once the material resource is assigned to a task you must enter the units into Actual Work then Actual Cost is calculated. Entering directly into Actual Cost is blocked. In other instances it will block from allowing input into Actual Cost on the first input column then will allow it after that. If data is input into the Actual Cost field Actual Work is not calculated and the 2 become out of sync. In even other instances it allows input into Actual Cost on the first try. The problem does not seem to be project specific either. Sometimes it works OK on a project and other times it doesn't. I have not been able to identify any commonality in occurance. Thanks, Debbie -- Debbie P
  • 4. Predecessor report
    I have a problem with making a report. Ive been trying to make a report from projects to excel with my predecessors. Some tasks have more than 10 external predecessors. The problem is that they dont show all the predecessors. I think after a number of characters it stops. Can anybody help me please? Thanks
  • 5. Project Pro 2003
    I have Project Server 2003 installed on our 2003 SBS network. Upon creating a task list and attempting to convert it to a project I discovered I need Project Pro 2002 or Office Project Pro 2003 installed to achieve this. My question is: must I purchase a CAL for each computer on my network when purchasing one of these additional softwares or is one CAL sufficiant, and is there a way to install the client software across the network? Thanks

Why are task bars red?

I just created a project schedule using MS Project 2007 and I also created a 
baseline.   When I do a "View -> Tracking Gantt" I now see the task bars for 
my current schedule on top and baseline task bars just below them.  Why is it 
that some of the top task bars (for the current schedule) are colored red 
while others are colored blue?  I don't understand what this difference in 
color means.

5.why do task bars shorten when adding resources

I have two questions,

Why do task bars shorten when resource names are added to the ends and how 
can I stop this happening?

Also, when I want to extend the duration over which a repeating task occurs, 
the newly added events also appear in new lines beneath the original 
recurring task line. When these erroneous lines are removed, the additional 
repeat tasks also disappear from the row into which they were added. This is 
most annoying and I'd really appreciate some help sorting it out.

 Can someone please help?
