  • 1. Master Resource Pool error
    When I try to open the MasterResourcePool in MS Project 2002 as read-only, I receive the following error message: 'Microsoft Project has encountered an error and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.' Does anyone know why this is happening? How do you fix it? Thank you, Heather
  • 2. Custom search order for Project Center views
    I have an enterprise project text field with acceptable values of Red/Amber/Green/Unassigned. Other than changing this to 1 Red, 2 Amber, 3 Green, 4 Unassigned, does anybody know how I can maintain this custom sort order in a Project Center view (rather than alphabetical order, i.e. Amber, Green, Red, Unassigned, which isn't very helpful!!)? Thanks Rob
  • 3. Server Authenticated Users Can't Access Public Documents
    Hi, I posted this question a couple of times, but the suggestions did not help :(. When users with a Server Authenticated account (not Windows Authenticated) attempt to access public documents (under Documents link), they get a message "You have logged on using your Microsoft Project Server account. Micrsoft Project Server accounts are not automatically given access to documents and issues. If you continue a logon dialog box will be displayed ...". I have added these user ID (Project Server) as well as NT login to SharePoint Team Services roles to no avail. Note that users with Windows Authenticated account have no problem Acessing links under Documents. More info: The server URL is added to Trusted site and the "Automatic Logon with current User ID and Password"option is checked. Thanks in advance.

    Ken -- Please allow me to ask you a couple questions and then perhaps I can pinpoint the source of your trouble: 1. Exactly what error message are you receiving on the Updates page? 2. Have you created a Rule for processing the updates? Let me know. Thanks! -- Dale A.

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?
