  • 1. Published Project no Longer Opens
    Hi, I have a published project that I can no longer open from Project Professional 2003. When I try to open it from the PWA server, I get: "The file "<> \File Name.published" cannot be opened." I can see that the path in MSP_PROJECTS is correct and when I try to open it, I can see that the system is trying to check the file out. Any ideas out there? Thanks in advance, Brad

  • 3. Document Libraries and Permissions
    We are experiencing some permission issues with some of our end users and access to our document libraries. Project Server is set up for access using Windows login. It is prompting them for Windows username and password when the click on the 'Document Library' link. And entering their Windows UID/PWD does not work. If a different Windows UID/PWD is entered when prompted (e.g. a domain admin login), then Project Server allows access to the document library and we can view documents. We tried making the users 'Administrators' and grant explicit global Admin permissions via Project Admin tools, and they still could not gain access to the document libraries. These are regular domain users in standard Windows groups. As a test, we added one or two users to the domain admin group, then they can get in w/o problems (obviously we don't want to do that!) - but we were looking for the source of the problem - is it AD or Project Server? Let me know if more information or clarification is needed. Thanks. -- Joe Baker

  • 5. Microsoft Cursor Engine error '80040e21' Error Creating a New Tas
    All We are useing MS Project Central Server. When trying to create a new task we are receiving the following error. "Microsoft Cursor Engine error '80040e21' Multiple-step operation generated errors. Check each status value. /projectcentral/Tasks/NewTaskPage.asp, line 102" We have the Web side of Project Central installed on Windows 2000 SP4, IIS5 and the SQL Database on Windows 2003 Server, SQL 2000. I have searched for the error message on Technet and Google and everything points at a SQL problem but nothing specific in relation to Project Central. Can any one help please or point me in the right direction Many thanks Kevan

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

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.
