  • 1. How to get rid of deleted task?
    Is there any way to clean up deleted task from the project server? My team members have figured out how to hide them from their views, but that seems to be the only place they can be hidden. When brining up reports on resource assignements, etc., I can't find a way to hide them. What I really want to do is just get rid of them completely and make them go away. That's why I deleted them to begin with, to make them go away. Please help with advise or ideas. Thanks.

    Unable to add enterprise resources. Getting following error Microsoft Project could not retreive the windows user account from the address book for "user" Try the following: Check the spelling of the user account for the resource check your network connection, and then try again It seems like it is using the "Address Book" to get the user information, instead of "MS Project Server". How to resolve this issue? Thanks Dhirendra
  • 3. Successor and Predecessor fields not appearing in Custom View
    I created a Project view Table : Task Displayed Fields: ID Task Name % Complete Duration Start Finish Predecessors Successors Resources Names From Project view All the fields appear in the order selected except for the Predecessors and Successors fields. Why are they not appearing in this view if the fields can be selected? I know they can be viewed in the Task View, but I wante them visible on the Project View! Thanks, Gwen Cisco Systems, Inc.

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

4.Renumber WBS

hello,
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?
