  • 1. 2 Questions
    1. Is there a way to remove the ID number column when printing? (Not currently visible on task sheet) 2. I have multiple sub-projects which each have ID numbers starting at 1. I'd like to print the master schedule and use a sequential numbering scheme across all schedules. i.e. - sub-project 1 goes from 1 to 100, sub-project 2 from 101 to 250, etc. Is there an easy way of doing this? Unique IDs are not sequential, just unique. Thanks!
  • 2. Proper Task Type and Updating Technique
    What is the proper technique for determining task type and updating incomplete work for the following type task? Tasks that are on-going for the duration of the project such as updating status reports, overall project management etc. We usually have a fixed amount of work authorized for each task, but as the project slips, the remaining hours need to be pushed forward. We track actual work for our resources entered via PWA. Updating % complete - Updates Resource Status Unchecked. Thanks. Lori

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?
