  • 1. How to make all custom fields appear in Project Detail screen?
    After selecting a project in the Project Center in PWA, we can click the "edit" button for the purpose of "editing enterprise custom fields". Only a select few are listed with no discernable pattern. How can we get all custom fields listed on this "Project Detail" screen? It would save our Project Managers the effort of firing up Microsoft Project 2003 to change Project Information each time.

  • 4. Unable to open mpd
    hi I have just installed project 2003 onto a new system. I can save a project as a project database but if i close it and try to re-open it I get "The file could not be opened." Yet I can open the file on another PC. I've tried re-installing, added service pack 2 but no joy. Any ideas? Laura G-B
  • 5. % complete vs. % work complete?
    I am looking after a large schedule involving a number of sub-projects. Each week, the leads of each sub-project update their percentage complete on the Gantt chart. The director now wants to know exactly how the rolled-up percentage complete compares to where we should be if every task was progressing exactly as planned (which as we all know, never happens)!! I thought that I had to enter the % work complete, and then go to the Tools/Tracking/update project menu item to update the % complete (if everything were on track). However, this seems to update both. I can't seem to find anything that adequately explains the differences between the % complete and % work Complete fields, and why they are sometimes different and sometimes the same.

I know I was able to change the items in the legend before, but I can't 
remember now.

I need to delete some of the legend items in my Gantt chard that are not 
used in the actual schedule. To avoid confusion

Go to Format-Bar Styles and put an asterisk (*) before the Name of the ones 
that you don't want to appear in the legend.

Or delete them...
