  • 2. Install 2002 uninstall 2000
    I uninstalled Project 2000 using Add/Remove Software. When installing 2002 I get the message "A previous version of this product has been found. Go to add/remove software and uninstall the previous version." My only choice is "OK" which stops the setup process. Project 2000 does not show up in Add/Remove since I uninstalled it. Need to get 2002 installed.

  • 4. List of Fields that I have used
    Hi, I use a lot of "Text 1, Text 2, Text 3" field and I forget which ones I used. In order for me to remember, I have to go to my views, hover over the column that I used the "Text" field for (that I have since changed the name) and then write it down on a separate document to keep track. There must be a way for me to see which Text fields have already been taken. Please lead me to the "cheese" as this mouse is tired of searching... Thanks, Mona

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

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.
