  • 3. Automatic Formatting of Gantt Bars
    I'm working with Project 2002 standard. I have a master plan with multiple projects inserted to represent the program I am managing. I would like MS Project to automatically change the color of the summary bars to match a Status field (Example - Green indicating on schedule, Red behind). I'm sure this is possible, but how difficult is it?
  • 4. Global.mpt fails to load on startup
    When I open Ms Project 2002 on my laptop, I get the message failed to load global.mpt. Project then opens with the global file. When I exit out of Project I am prompted to save Global.mpt. This problem will not allow me to open any saved files in Project. I have been having this problem from the start. I have installed the service pack for the product, reinstalled project, deleted the Global.mpt file but still get the same message. I also had the same problem with Word 2002 a few months ago. Any Ideas?
  • 5. "Compressed" resource graphs
    Hi Is there any way in Project (2000 or above) to display a "compressed" version of the resource graphs so you can see several on one page rather than having to scroll though every resource graph? Would it be possible to show only over-allocated resources so attention can be focused on leveling those? Thanks Clive

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.
