  • 2. Calculated field
    Is there a way to create calculated field, something like number1=number2+number3. I'd like to track actual work monthly and a calculated field, for example Actual Work = Nov Actuals (number2) + Dec Actuals (number3.
  • 3. Bar Text
    I just want to put a text at the right side of a task bar. How can I do this? It looks that I can select Text1, 2, 3,.... for Bar Text. I think that they are text variable names. Now, if my guess is correct, how can I assign a text string to one of these text variables. Thanks.
  • 4. Email Function from Project Server
    I am trying to get my email function to work automatically in Project Server. Can someone tell me where I need to start? I have already configured the email and notification set up on the Admin feature. Also, I configured the Tracking, Notification and Reminders feature. I have set the email reminders for my resources and no luck. I have set the email to run at a certain time everyday but the email feature will not run. The only thing that works, is when I request a notification myself. Any help will be great. Tyrone

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.

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 
code the formula to pull the task name.
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.
