  • 1. Macro for Multiple Filter - Custom Toolbar
    Hello Experts, I would like to create a macro and assign it to a custom toolbar for my users. I need the macro to prompt the users to select from a list of multiple filters. I have a few filters in mind that i would like to have the user select from without having to go to project--filters--and select from the list there. I think this will involve the ApplyFilter command and the InputVal function some how but I dont know how to add the fitler i want under the prompt window. Thanks in advanced for your help Hadi

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?
