  • 1. Problem installing Project 2002 on Windows XP Professional
    Hi, I'm facing the problem of "corrupt cabinet" while installing Microsoft Project 2002 on Windows XP. Actually this problem should not be there on XP becoz the Windows Installer is already the new one. I was not able to find any update/patch for Windows Installer for XP. The READMe says that this problem occurs on Windows NT, 98 and 2000 and requires the update to windows installer. That update on the CD doesn't work for XP. It throws error saying something related to Build Version of OS, which is obviously different from NT and 2000. Pls. help. Thanks, Jeremy Smith

  • 4. 405 Error
    Just thought I'd share the solution in case anyone else runs into this--the MSADC was a red herring--the solution was to change ProjectServer Properties execute permissions to scripts and executables. Hope this helps someone.
  • 5. Multiple Links is Moving My Project Time Up
    I need to apply multiple links to a project that I am working on. Each time I do this, my project extends out at least an additional month. What constraints do I need to do? Anything else? Thanks in advance. Sherree.

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 
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.
