  • 1. does Project have XSLT and XML?
    I notice Office apps such as Word and Excel have the XSLT language so you can write XSL documents to transform data to other applications. I could not find this information on the MS Project home page.
  • 2. Is there anyway to HIGHLIGHT a field or words in MS Project 2003?
    I am wanting particular fields to stand out in a project plan. I know that you can change the font color, but that isn't what I'm really wanting. Was hoping the whole field could be highlighted like in other MS products.

    Somehow one of the Task has duplicated subtasks name. How can I remove one of them? This is viewing from PWA. For example: Task Name Work % Work Complete Administrative Time 8h 0% 3004 Administrative 4h 0% 3004 Administrative 4h 0% How can I remove the second "3004 Administrative" ? TIA Johnny

  • 5. Rounding in Project 2000
    I have a question regarding rounding. I am using a text field as a duration field and would like to round the result to two decimal points. The formula that I am using (without the rounding function) is as follow TRIM([Duration2]*[Number5]/360)+' days'. The problem with this formula is that it gives me more precision than needed. Thanks, Phuong

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?
