  • 1. MS-Project Server 2007: open a server file
    I am able to open files, which are stored on local drive by WinProj /s <servername> filename It fails, if the file is only stored on the server. I got an error "Project cannot open File". I saw a post using server.mdb\filename instead of only using the filename. I assume it means that by accessing the server a local copy of the database file is written in a temp directory on the local drive. My problem is: I can't see this mdb. How does it work with MS-Project server 2007?

    Scenario: Project server 2007, Outlook 2007 with the Project Add-Ins, OS Vista I have a Duel boot laptop with XPSP3 and Vista SP1. In XP using Outlook 2007 with the Project add-In, when I do the Import and Update, things work o.k. But when I in Vista and Outlook 2007 and do The Import or Update I get logon failures to the server. This is not just me it is every computer that is using Vista with Outlook to Import or update Task in Project server. Is this a known issue?

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?
