  • 1. How to update project data in project 2002 server?
    Gordon -- I would recommend the following process for updating project data: 1. Open Microsoft Project 2002 2. Open the project containing tasks to be updated 3. Click View - Gantt Chart, if necessary 4. Click View - Table - Tracking 5. Pull the vertical split bar to the right so that you can see the Actual Start, Actual Finish, and % Complete columns 6. Enter these values, as needed, for any task that needs to be updated 7. Save the project Hope this helps. -- Dale A.

  • 2. Web Enabled Schedule Integration & Analysis
    I need a scheduling application that allows me to create dependencies between activitie in different projects and then perform critical path analysis of both schedules together and produce reports showing the impact of the new dependencies. Can I do that with Microsoft Project Server or Project Central? Thanks, Mike
  • 3. cannot use project
    I have installed Project 2002. When I open the application, the new project is blank, every view I click on shows a shite page with no cells. When I attempt to open project files they are blank. I have re-installed several times with no luck. Help!
  • 4. Integration of multiple project files
    Hello, I am trying to compile multiple project files into one single project file with the original dates intact, so that the dates integrate themselves with other project dates. Any clue on how I can go about this?
  • 5. Exporting/Outputing PDF
    Is there a straightforward way to create a PDF file from an MS Project 2002 project file? It is so easy in other MS Office applications, so I was hoping the current version of Project would be the same, but apparently not so. I've tried various mapped exports to Excel, but it's the Gantt visualization that's critical, and it is lost in any data-only export. Thanks, Joseph

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.

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.
