  • 1. Which product ? Professional or Server?
    My company is planning to purchase MS Project. We do not know what product is best suited for us. We have four IT managers that must share their developers for when staffing projects. There are 50+ developers and many have specific skills. Each project leader will create and maintain their own project plan. The IT manangers need thier project leaders to 'roll up' their projects under their manager. Then Director of IT wants all IT managers to insert their projects into a 'master' list so that reports for the whole department will show all current projects, shared resources and resource allocations. Please make recommendations. We do have a company intranet but we do not have time to develop web pages like is described by the MS Project Web Access. Can Project Server 2002 be used with Project 2002 Professional and share resources, roll-up and report?

    Part of the Clean Up Database page is the ability to delete all task changes ent by resources, and I would probably use older than, since you would want to keep around the newer ones. >-----Original Message----- >I have some task changes that were submitted by resources >a couple weeks ago.

    I have deleted our enterprise project template by mistake. Does anyone know where they are stored so that I may possibly restore the template from a backup of the server?
  • 4. Size of Collaboration Status-Request Screen
    Is there a way for increase the size of the Collaboration form so that more of the horizontal scrollable portion is visible? I do know -- just like in excel -- that you ae able to adjust the size of the columns; but I don't think the final answer is in that capability. Especially since the task-name is filling up the hoizontal on the 1st screen. In that case, there is no place to put the cursor so as to resize the column. Unfortunately, I have several people balking at using this reporting facility until they can see more infomation at once. Thanks ...

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?
