  • 1. Open MS Project Files in two different screens
    I have two desktops connected to my laptop in my docking station. Now, I want to open two different MS Project files in two different screens to compare it. Is it possible to do it? I think this applies for any of Microsoft applications. Right now I can open MS Project only on one of the two screen. So, if I want to go back and forth in two different MS Project Files, I have to change windows in same screen and can't have both of them open in two different screens. I will appreciate if anyone can answer it! Thanks Swapnil

    Hello, One of my users has a Project document that she amended and resaved to a different filename. On trying to open the new file she recieveds the following error :- --- The paste operation cannot be completed The insert or paste operation cannot be completed because the total number of rows would exceed the limit of 1,048,000 rows in a project Insert fewer rows....etc --- Any help on what this could be caused by, and how I can get this file to open would be greatly appreciated. TIA
  • 3. milestone gantt
    Hi, I have a gantt that has only milestones. Some of them are 100% complete. The sumary line of the activities/gantt shows 0% complete. Why can't I see the part that is complete - if 3 are complete out of 10, why don't I see 30%??

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?
