  • 2. Can ONE person actualise tast on server instead the others??
    During working with Microsoft Project 2002 Proffessional and Microsoft Project 2002 Server, we found a problem: If there are multiple assignments on all tasks, Is it possible, with tools of MS Project 2002 Professional and MS Project 2002 Server, to make one of the workers to be the only one to actualize the whole task with multiple assigmnent? Oherwise said: Can he/she update task instead of the other workers (they are external resources = contractors with no MS Project licence) with only one login and password on MS Project Server 2002??

  • 4. DSN, Project 2000 and Project Server 2002
    I have finally managed to get Project Server 2002 installed along with SharePoint Services and what not. I had the project manager upload a project plan. Now he cannot access it! He is using Project 2000 and we found some KB articles that talk about setting up DSNs on the client box and the server box and so on. I set all these up and checked but cannot seem to get the DSN to show in the show DSN section of the views under the admin section of the Project Server website. Does anyone out there have any ideas? Thank you in advance, Rohan

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

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.
