    Hey i cant seem to figure this out, im having problem with a task overlapping one that is linked. I have a delivery date set, and a installation date below it is linked to.

  • 4. Vulnerable Security when Log on using a different Microsoft Windows user account
    Hi All, I think this is a critical problem because related to security issue. The problem is: I log on my friend PC, so I use feature "Log on using a different Microsoft Windows user account". After I finished using Project Central/Server then I log off. BUT, when my friend klik button "Log on using a different Microsoft Windows user account", my friend can access Project Central with my account directly. There's no form come out to ask username and password. It directly go through Project Central with my account. Anybody can help me to solve this. Is ther something I have to re-configure?

predecessors and successors

Postby Ingrid » Wed, 30 Jul 2003 15:57:53 GMT

I am using 4 project files linked to each other in a master
file.  The predecessors and successors don't seem to have
any pattern for when they appear and when they don't.  Eg.
a task in one project(project A) may have three successors
in another one (project B), yet only two show up in project
A in the task list of a gantt chart.  

I've tried turning the "show external sucessors" on and off
in Tools>Options but this doesn't actually hide them all or
show them all - I still get some showing and some not

Any ideas how to get some consistency with these?

I want to display for each task row any predecessor and successor task names

4.synching predecessor and successor dates based on F-S link

Hi folks,

I'm working with MSP2003 and PS2003.  I have a project with afew tasks that have predecessor - successor relationships.  They are F-S.  Some have a lag, some have a lead time, some have neither.  The issue I have is that when the finish date changes for a predecessor task, the start date for the successor remains unchanged.  I've checked the calculation settings and it is set to recalculate automatically.

For example

Task 115 is a predecessor for task 117.  T115's end date is June 28.  T117's start date is June 30.  If I change T115's end date to July 7, the startdate for T117 remains set to June 30.

Thanks for any insights.
