  • 1. Filtering complete activites on timesheets
    Unfortunately we are not ready to roll out PWA so we need to use manual timesheets at present (modified Resource Usage view). I would really like to filter completed activities from the timesheet but as far as I can tell there is no way to differentiate between activities which really are finished (ie zero estimates left) and activites which are not actually finished but need to be re-estimated. Can someone help?
  • 2. Table Field Name Creation
    I have created tables for accepting Excel data to create mpp files. The format of the received files tends to change without notice, and I would like to check the format before undertaking the conversion process. Can I create a xcel file by fieldname from the table/s I have created? What I want is essentially to be able to check the data definition of the received file against my table. I can't seem to be able to copy the field name to do so.

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 think that if all the subprojects are expanded then you will see the

3.Display Predecessor and Successor Task Names

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

I want to do this because the procject is relatively large.
I think I should use a customized text field. However, I am unsure how to

Any advice would be appreciated.

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.
