  • 3. gubi://blank.htm/
    After installation, we cannot open the software. We get an error teeling us that Project is looking for gbui://blank.htm/ and we should list it on our trusted sites in Explorer. We tried that and Explorer would not accept the information. What error is this and how do we fix it? We are running V2002 of Project Standard on a Win98 machine. Thank you
  • 4. Costs or values in durations
    I'm trying to have Project show potential cost savings within a specified duration. EX: If my duration for a task is 60 days, I want to show a projected savings value (this is my input, not a calculation) and have it show in the time line. Any ideas on how to best make this happen? Currently I place a text box at the end of the line. If I add a task, I must remember to move the text box. I want to avoid this. I want the value to show/move with the task duration. Thanks in advance. Dave Boyce XXXX@XXXXX.COM

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

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.
