  • 2. How to resolve phantom task links
    I continue to be plagued by this issue in our Enterprise environment. We are running Project Pro and Server 2003. When revising task durations/work I have often come across a popup message which states that a constraint upon another task is affected. This would suggest that the task being revised is somehow linked to the task which is referred to in the message. After careful review I find that neither task acts as a predecessor or successor to the other. I cannot seem to find any relation between the two tasks. I have checked the properties dialogue for both tasks and don't know where else to look or how to further diagnose/troubleshoot. Does anyone have ideas about how to handle this???

  • 4. Create Next Milestone Task Field
    Hello all, I am currently trying to create an enterprise outline code to show the next Milestone for a given Project. I would like to have this show in PWA across many projects (85+). Any insight into how to do this would be appreciated. BIGGER PICTURE: I am trying to create a dashboard for all this projects using the EPM solution and Sharepoint Web Parts as the impl. If anyone has any thoughts on this I am all ears as well. Thanks, Andy

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.
