    Brian, I saw in a reply to a previous posting that you mentioned a hotfix out for Project environments with large SQL database (in excess of 1gb). Do you know the hotfix #, KB#, or Bug# by chance. Thanks in advance, Michael
  • 2. Calendar in MS Project Server 2002
    How can I setup a new calendar? I would like to have a couple of calendars (24hr, User, Tech...) to attach to tasks within one project plan. In other versions of projects I could go to tools Change Calendar and pick a 24 hour calendar or create a new calendar. In this version it will not let me create or bring one in from the organizer form. I'm not sure if this is caused because we are using Project Server 2002.
  • 3. "Manager" column/data field?
    Hello, We are on the Project Pro/Project Server 2003 platform and have multiple leads managing tasks (i.e. processing updates) from the same project plan. Tasks were shipped to each manager via the Collaborate/Publish/Republish Assignments menu option and then by choosing the checkbox for "Become Manager of these assignments". My question is - in Project 2003 is there a column/data field that can be added to the Enterprise Gantt view that will display the manager for each task? With several leads processing updates against the same plan, it would be very helpful to see in one place who "owns" each task in the plan. The only other way that I currently know to identify who is managing a particular task is to submit updates against that task as a team member and when the Update button is hit....the system indicates in a dialog box who will receive the updates. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. Ken
  • 4. Artemis Data Import
    Hi, Does anyone know of a tool out there to import data from an Artemis database into Microsoft Project Server 2002? My company switched from Artemis to PS 2002 this year and would like to import the old data from Artemis into Project Server. We'd be interesting in free or not free solutions if any are available. Thanks, -Adam
  • 5. AD Sync failure?
    I just installed project server 2003 and syncronized the resource pool to a AD secrurity group. That woked as a test. Now I want it to syncronize to another group that I created and now I get this error message on the page. What gives?? The Active Directory group failed to synchronize with the Enterprise Resource Pool on 3/1/2004 at 4:35 PM

Can't Renumber WBS for "Selected Tasks"

Postby J Baird » Sat, 06 Mar 2004 04:22:47 GMT

I have a schedule, where I've renumbered the WBS numbers for selected tasks,
on a regular basis.  ([Project][Wbs][Renumber][Select Tasks])

All of a sudden, in the [WBS Renumber] dialog box, the [Selected Tasks]
option is greyed out (the [Entire Project] option is still selectable).
Nothing else has changed...the WBS settings and Code Definition are still
the same as when the [Selected Tasks] option was available.

To try to fix the problem , I selected [Project][Wbs][Renumber][Entire
Project], to renumber the entire project, hoping that would bring back the
[Selected Tasks] option, but it didn't.

I can't find anything in the knowledge base about this.  Has anyone seen
this behavior before, and if so, do you know what caused it?

Hello J.

If you select only one row, the [WBS Renumber] dialog box presents only the
[Entire Project] option.
Have you tried to select several rows ?

Of course...As I said, I've renumbered selected tasks on a regular basis.
Now, the [Selected Tasks] option is greyed out.  I know that I'm not the
only person that this has happened to.

1.Renumber WBS for Selected Tasks is broken for one file (it used to work)

I have a schedule where I've frequently renumbered the WBS values for parts
of the schedule, using the [Project][Wbs][Renumber][Select Tasks] command.

All of a sudden, when I select several tasks (not just one!), and click the
[WBS Renumber] dialog box, the [Selected Tasks] option is greyed out (the
[Entire Project] option is still selectable).

Nothing else has changed...the WBS settings and Code Definition are still
the same as when the [Selected Tasks] option was available.  When MSP
renumbers the WBS for "Selected Tasks", it uses the first selected item as a
starting reference, and there's a valid WBS value in that task.  The numbers
it would normally create with this command, are not already in the Project
file, so uniqueness isn't a problem.

To try to fix the problem , I selected [Project][Wbs][Renumber][Entire
Project], to renumber the entire project, hoping that would bring back the
[Selected Tasks] option, but it didn't.

I can't find anything in the knowledge base about this.  I've had several
users complain of the same problem, but not until they have renumbered
selected tasks, a lot of times.

Has anyone seen this behavior before, and if so, do you know how we can get
the Selected Tasks WBS Renumbering to work again?





2.Renumbering WBS using the Project/WBS pull down window

I have MS Project 2003 Standard: I wish to renumber an existing WBS. The Help 
instructions say: Select Project, then WBS, then Renumber, then Entire 
project.  When I select Project, then WBS,the window is locked in the "Define 
Code" mode.  The Renumber option is muted and cannot be selected. Icannot 
proceed.
What am I doing wrong?
How can I renumber an existing WBS?

3.WBS Renumber greyed out

Hi,

I'd like to renumber my WBS elements.  When I click Projects, WBS the 
renumber menu is in grey and can not be used.  This happens even a new 
project with only two tasks.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

  Darrell

i created a wbs code.  however, after deleting and moving tasks, the code is 
no longer correct.  in microsoft help, i found that you can renumber the wbs 
code for the entire project.
but if i go in a task sheet view and i go to the project menu, wbs, i cannot 
select renumber?
how can i solve this problem ? (i have a feeling this is an easy one...)
thank you.

5.How to renumber W.B.S. codes

I have MS Project 2003 Professional.  There is an option on the Project menu 
for 'W.B.S.'  'Renumber', but the 'Renumber' function is not highlighted and 
won't let me select it.  According to online help you should be able to 
select your tasks by name (or entire project) and renumber the W.B.S. codes 
but I cannot get it to work.  How can you do this?
