  • 1. baselines and interim
    what is the best way for tracking a project? I have been saving project outlines as baseline but what's best to do after that? When updates are made as project progress should entries just be saved or should they be saved as an additional baseline or an interim? Thanks
  • 2. Resource Pool and Resource Usage View problems
    I have a question regarding creation of resource pools. I am using MSP2002 Std. I have some 30 projects inserted in a master project, all sharing a common resource pool using Tools, Share Resouce Pool. On viewing the resource allocations and inserting a column for Project in the Resource Usage view, I find full path entries for resources/tasks for a number of old versions of projects, (indicating sub-project not open)including deleted files and old names of files that I have renamed to current inserted projects in the master file. This obviously distorts the total resource allocation picture. I have deleted/moved the old files and set them to use their own resources, and then re-created the master file. Still the unwanted entries appear in the Res Usage view. I have re-created the problem with a small test file. It appears that short of deleting the ResPool file, I can't correct this problem, and that would result in massive re- work in re- resourcing each project. I think I must be doing something basically wrong here. I think perhaps is related to the way I save the resource file as I am working with the project files, but don't know. Would appreciate any advice/input.
  • 3. MS Procect 2002: Resource Pool - resource calender
    I runseveral projects using a resource pool. If I update the resource calenders with actual holiday dates the "actual work" dates of the past are altered! MS project shuffels the actual working times random to other dates and in different time-slices. What can I do to prevent the changing of past real data, and keep track of holidays etc. individually?
  • 4. Project Web Access login error
    We are getting the following trying to log into Project Web Access. Has anyone seen this before. We don't get the error using IE 5.0, only IE 6.0 and IE 6.0SP1. You cannot be logged on because your security settings in Internet Explorer do not allow per-session cookies. Enable per-session cookies, and try to log on again. (5011)
  • 5. Set Delegate Task=DENY -> Broken My Task View
    Hi all! I tried to suppress the ability for anyone to delegate tasks. I went to My Organization and checked DENY and unchecked ALLOW for "Delegate Task" When I went to the My Task View the page generated an error was encountered: "Line 5301 char 7 Erorr: 'idRequestTaskStatusBtn' is undefined" Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong??

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

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.
