  • 1. Creating Custom Fields
    I need to create a field for time in hours in Microsoft Projects. I do not want to use the duration field and display 4hrs. I would like to create a time field that would allow me to show start time (e.g. 1:00 PM) and finish time (e.g. 2:00 PM). Any help would be appreciated. Thank You
  • 2. task and subtask finish dates
    When I enter subtasks for a task, or change subtask finish dates, it seems to me that the finish date for the task should be set to equal to the greatest finish date for the task's subtasks. But that doesn't happen. In fact, the only way I can change the finish date for an existing task is to outdent all it's subtasks until they are no longer subtasks, change the date, then reindent the subtasks. Why? Any ideas?

  • 4. MS Project 2000+
    Task and Project Priority Now there are 1,000 unique priority levels for tasks. The ability to assign project priority levels is new in Microsoft 2000. What is the use of priority levels? Does it only reflect leveling priorities? M. Shein

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...
