  • 1. Timescale Question.
    Hi All, I am using the Task Usage Cost View to show fixed costs distributions over a number of years. I only want to show the total for each financial year i.e. April to March. Trouble is only way I can see to show this information is to show years and quarters and then add up the quarters. Anyone know if there is a way to show a single total for each 'financial year'? Cheers. Bill.
  • 2. exporting projects
    Hi, I need to copy and paste/export my project to put it in a powerpoint presentation. However, if I use the faithful copy and paste, only the first 12 tasks are shown. If I say for it to put all information in, it is unreadble.... I have tried scanning it as PDf and copying it but that is also unreadable.... Is there a way to export the project or copy it in a way that it is the same as when printed (i am able to print it and it is readable) Thanks
  • 3. Assigning customized functionality to individual global.mpt files
    I am running MSP 2003 SP3. In addition I use 3rd Party Applications that integrate with Project such as AzTech, Pertmaster Risk Expert, Pert Chart Expert, and proprietary company macros. Unfortunately these apps and macros ends up conflicting with several text, number, and cost fields etc. So I end up sacrificing functionality due to this conflict. Is there a way that i could set up project so that I could create multiple global.mpt files and then run Project by the funcitionality that I need at a given time? i.e., I need to run a risk analysis using Pertmaster, so I would start Project and call the global.mpt file that contrains the Pertmaster functionality, fields, etc. Thank you.
  • 4. Entering Costs
    Hi All, Can anyone tell me how to manually enter costs against a timeline please. i.e. K Jan 2008, 5K in Mar 2009 etc. I need to see the accumulated costs for each line of the project and each month or year. Regards. Bill.
  • 5. Set Reminder
    Hello, Why the option "Set reminder" (the icon with the bell) isn't available at project 2007 ? Is it bug or something else ? Thanks Pearl

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...
