  • 1. Project Central 2000 Installation Problem
    I am trying to install PC2000 on a Windows 2000 Server with MSDE already installed. I obviously cannot use the "Install Now" feature but when I get to the "custom" screens, I do not know the answers to things like "database name", "account name", "password". I'm not sure when MSDE was installed or why but it was somewhere along the way with some sort of software. Any ideas on how to get this to work?
  • 2. Point hyperlink always onto the same process
    Hi, I work with MS Project 2000. Is there any possibility to create a hyperlink from a schedule to another, namely to a specific process? I know that it works like this: detailplan_meile.mpp#Balkendiagramm (Gantt)!11 The problem is, that the link always points to row #11. If a process is inserted before it, the link points to the process which was in row #10 before. Is there any solution? E.g. a possibility to access the process name or the singular number with a hyperlink? Greets Zabble
  • 3. How do I level resources?
    Project 2003 Standard. I have resources that are being shown as overallocated, and yet they look to me as though they aren't. 8 hour work day, and 8 hours of work. How is this overallocated? I looked at levelling hour by hour, and it didn't seem to correct it. Is there something else I'm missing? (I only have one project set up so the resource isn't allocated to a different project.)
  • 4. Importing from Excel
    I'm using Proj2000. I built an Import/Export map and successfully imported a workbook. When I try to use the map to open another workbook with exactly the same structure, I get an OUT OF CONTEXT message for every field in all 3 tables. Can someone explain what's going on and how can I solve this? Thanks. Ken

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.
