  • 1. Protected Actuals???
    We have noticed some inconsistency with data in project plans vs. data in user's timesheet. Is there a way to run a report (maybe a SQL command) that will provide me with all hours that a user submitted? I have used "Synch to actual data" from Tools | Tracking to try to get "protected actuals", but some of the values that came back don't make sense. I would like to run a report that compares what the user submitted vs. what is currently being displayed as actual hours. Given that it is so easy to overwrite user submitted actual hours in a project plan, it makes sense that a report like this would be very beneficial to many administrators. I'm sure there must be a way, besides the "updates" report that list all task approved time...which we can't rely upon because of several different factors. Thanks, Scott
  • 2. Custom Field Formula Help
    I'm trying to build a formula in the Custom Field then Enterprise Project Date selection. I want to calculate the difference between the Current date and Status Date and keep getting ERROR. My formula is ([Status Date]-[Current Date])/480, can someone please help???
  • 3. Initialize code without using a com add-in
    Is there any way I can initialize code (stored in e.g. the enterprise global) without using a com add-in? Thanx
  • 4. Can see project in the Project Renamer utility, but not in Web Acc
    I think there is an orphaned Project record in my database. I cannot view it in Project Web Access to delete the Project, but I can view it in the Project Renamer utility. I thought about moving the record from MSP_PROJECTS, but I was worried that I would further orphan data somewhere else in the database. How can I fully delete this project from the database? It doesn't look like it is attached to a project owner, which may be part of the problem. Thanks, Racer-D
  • 5. Not every user loading Enterprise Global template
    I have loaded, modified saved the Enterprise global template and some users can see the one I modified but others still see the older version of the Enterprise global template. Does anyone have any suggestions on what could be going on. Why do some users see it and others do not? Using: OS 2003 / MS Project Server 2003 / Project Office 2003 professional Thank you Cory Craig

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?
