  • 1. pegar celdas rellenas desde excel directamente al Gantt
    Trabajo mucho con Project, brindo asesorias y trabajo en esto todo el dia. He encontrado un problema comun en los equipos multidisciplinarios y me gustaria verlo solucionado en Project. La mayoria de las personas programan actividades en excel (esto en su fase de Planeacin) y rellenan las celdas con color para indicar la longitud de las tareas a las cuales asignan cualquier unidad, por lo general semanas, para ellos es lo maximo dado que es como interpretan su Work Flow, adems no todo el mundo tiene project en su empresa, pero si tienen Office! Seria bueno poder copiar las celdas que ellos rellenan en excel (en donde cada celda es una unidad de Tiempo) y pegarlas directamente a la Vista gantt en MS-Project ,el cual deberia ser una rejilla totalmente manipulable, y a partir de esto project deberia calcular las fechas, basado en la Iniciacion del proyecto y la unidad de tiempo asignada, Esto permitiria tener un Project de doble via, una la del profesional que integra los datos tecnicos en project y otro del que se toma la informacin primaria.
  • 2. Display non-dependent external tasks?
    We have a master schedule (Prj2003) that includes certain milestones that we would like to display in a number of "external" schedules. These milestones are not predecessors of any tasks in those schedules, and the external projects are not sub-projects of the master schedule. Is there a way to link milestones from the master schedule to an external schedule so that changes to those milestones would show up in the external schedule? Thanks Dave
  • 3. Customizing reports in Project 2002
    We have an integrated master schedule with subprojects inserted. Each project is work for various organizations. We have inserted a column in the IMS and labeled each task an organization. We are using one resource pool for all projects. We need a report that tells us the total work hours by month for which organization by resource. We have a who does what when that totals hours, but now we need to add for WHOM.
  • 4. Simple Gantt Chart In MS Project - Newbie
    Please excuse what may be an incredibly stupid question. I'm a database developer, and well versed in my apps, but Project has me stumped. Perhaps I'm trying to kill a fly with a F22. I'm importing into MS Project from Filemaker Pro via ODBC a database of about 150 seperate projects that we track. Pretty basic fields in the database for each project: Job Location, Job Description, Project Manger, Planning Start Date, Planning End Date, Bid Start Date, Bid End Date, Construction Start Date, Construction End Date, Project Manager Comment. All I want MS Project to do is import the data of all the fields above, and plot them on a big Gantt Chart (we have BIG plotters to print). Smith Bldg Fix Door Steve 10/1/2004 10/3/2004 10/8/2004 10/12/2004 11/1/2004 11/15/2004 custom door job and then the next job, the next job, etc. . For the life of me, I can't seem to make this happen. I can get the ODBC to import, but everything ends up with a little chart of just today- instead of the days I specify. Any direction greatly appreciated!

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.

4.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?
