  • 2. MSP 2002- Cannot see assigned Resources
    Hi, I have an MPP file which I'm not sure was created in MS Project 2000 or MS Project 2002. If I open it using MS Project 2000 I am able to see the resources assigned for the tasks. But If I open the SAME file using MSProject 2002 there is nothing under the "Resource Names" Heading for those tasks!! How is this possible? Please help as I am not able to edit the file using MSProject 2002, because i can't see the resources. Thanks.
  • 3. User has problem saving doc
    When a particular user edits a word doc in the document library and attempts to save the doc, there is no prompt to save to the web site. With this users account on another computer the user is prompted to save to the web site. The user is on Windows 2000 professional but we have done it on another Windows 2000 professional box with no problems. Anyone had this problem, maybe it's a local setting with rights? Thanks for help in advance!!!! Ben Hebert
  • 4. Delete Removed Tasks from Project Server
    I had this same issue come up this week. I also have had no luck on how to stop the e-mails or why the e-mails are still being sent. I have had this issue with completed tasks as well. The resource will submit a completed task with zero remaining work hours and they are still receiving past due e-mail notifications. The project plan and time sheet both show the task as complete. I know this doesn't help your cause but at least I know that I am not the only one experiencing this problem. >-----Original Message----- >After a task has been assigned to a resource and >subsequently removed for any number of reasons it still >remains on the task list for that resource.

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
But other than that, I find that they are somewhat capricious.

Please try to keep replies in this group. I do check e-mail, but only

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

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.
