  • 1. Login problem
    Hi, I have a user who has Project Professional 2003 installed in his laptop. If he tries to open a project from Project Web Access a VBScript message stating "You need Microsoft Project Professional 2002 or Microsoft Project Professional 2003 in order to perform this action. " is shown - obviously this is not the case since Project Professional 2003 is there. I verified the account against the server to be working fine. The user is part of the Project Manager group and his permissions looks fine. I got more confused when I tried Project Center from the Collaborate menu in Project Professional, selected any project, clicked Open and the project opened just fine. Anybody knows what's going on? Thanks
  • 2. Customized fields
    How can I customize a task field with a formula using resource field. i.e. I am writing a formula for a task field and I want to use in that formula resource fields. I don't mind using VBA. Thanks
  • 3. Resource availability information and MSP_VIEW_* tables
    Hi: I have configured PWA to generate only resource availability information in a range of two years all nights. It had been working ok until some days ago, when I noticed it started to fail. I noticed that the information at least in the MSP_VIEW_PROJ_ASSN_TP_BY_DAY is wrong (exists one entry for each day of the assignments but the fields about work, realwork, ... of the assignment are 0 fo some projects that should have values in those days). I have read in the administrator's guide that the COM+ Microsoft Office OLAP Cube component controls the generation of information of availability, so I have tried with various configurations of the COM+ Microsoft Office OLAP Cube component changing the activation from Server to Aplication, ... but it doesnt seems to work properly (generates the information one day and stop some days after...) So my cuestions are, what is the recomended configuration for the COM+ component? Why can it be failing? Why i`m loosing information in MSP_VIEWS_* tables if they shoud be updated in the publishing process? Thanks.
  • 4. Task list becoming unusable
    We have been using Project server for awhile now. Several of the developers have had tasks assigned to them which were subsequently reassigned to other developers. Unfortunately their task list are getting longer and longer. Is there anyway (delete from SQL Server?) to remove these. From what I read there is not but this is getting out of control. If I copy all of the projects to .MPPs and then delete them from Project, will it remove them from their Task list? Thanks, Gary
  • 5. Change notificaiton email format slightly
    Our projects look like: Build new screen Coding Unit Testing Peer testing where the indented items are subtasks (Coding, Unit testing, Peer testing). On the email notification my staff is getting: Task "Coding" is due(overdue, etc). Is there a way to have it show the group the task belongs to?

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

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?
