  • 2. MS Project 2000 and Windows XP
    We are converting PCs to Windows XP from Windows 2000. When sending e-mail reminder notifications from MS Project2000 to participants that have already converted to Windows XP, they are receiving 3 warnings. The warnings state, "are you sure you want to send/reply to this message?" 1. Why do they receive the message? 2. How can this be stopped or turned off to make it easier for my user?

  • 4. Removing tasks from "Resource View"
    I have MS Project 2002 std and running project server 2002 successfully. I have a couple of resources that no longer work for the company and have completed tasks, but never updated Project Web Access. So, I went into the actual mpp file (as the PM) and marked the tasks 100% complete using "tools / tracking / update task". The actual MS Project file shows the tasks and the project 100% complete, however when I log onto PWA and select "Resources" from the menu, it shows the tasks for those resources still at 0% and 33% respectively. These resources have been removed from the network by the IT admin, so nobody can log onto PWA using their accounts. If I click on "Projects" in PWA, and select the project I am concerned with, the tasks show that they are completed. How can I update the "Resources" view to show these tasks as complete? I have tried to see if I could "hide" the tasks, but that option is not there under this view. HELP! Jeff

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.
