  • 1. Cannot connect to the configuration database - Project Server
    Hi G, Thank you for the assistance. I followed the steps but the message displayed after step 4 was "There are no site templates installed on the specified server running Windows SharePoint Services. Verify that the web server is properly extended with Windows SharePoint Services." What I don't get is the fact that NO changes have been made on the server. If any further advice and guidance could be offered, I would appreciate it.

  • 2. Rejecting time after it is approved
    Is there a way for a project manager to reject time after it has been approved and entered into the project plan? So for example, if a resource has discovered that he/she submitted time for the wrong time period, or submitted time to the wrong plan is there a way to reject it so they can submit it in the correct period or to the correct plan? We are using open and closed time periods with protected actuals. Thanks!

  • 4. Project Server with VSEA
    We are looking at implementing Microsoft Project Server 2003 with Sharepoint Services within our growing and expanding development organization. We are looking at a the development of a large .Net application (developed as sub modules) with an Oracle backend DB. Recent discussions have focused on analysis tools. One side of the house is promoting the entire Visual Studio.NET Enterprise Architect solution for UML, documentation and modeling so that modeling can flow directly into code and table structures. Others are promoting the idea of Rational XDE and Erwin instead and simply using Visual Studio Developer as the coding tool. I realize that XDE actaully integrates into VS even better than Visio EA does. From a project management side, does Project Professional 2003 along with Project Server tie in better with one approach or the other? Are there direct links to tasks, subprojects, issues and risks if we stay within the 'Microsoft House' as opposed to the more diverse tool set? Does it make a difference? Strictly from the PM side - is there an advantage one way or the other? Thanks. Steve
  • 5. Gaining access after a company-required password change
    My company requires that the user create a new password every 90 days for security purposes. When the user goes in to connect to Project Server via PWA or Project PRO, they are getting an error stating they are not authorized to view the directory or page using the credentials they supplied "because your Web browser is sending a WWW-Authenticate header field that the Web server is not configured to accept. Can someone explain what is happening here and what needs to be done to correct it? Thanks. -- Brian

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?
