  • 1. PERT Entry Sheet and Error Message
    In both 2003 and 2007, when I open a file and click the PERT Entry Sheet button, I get an error message that reads: An error occurred in the COM Add-in named: PERT Analysis Error #:1101. The file "Tips & Shortcuts PERT Test" was not found. My only option is to click OK. The PERT Entry Sheet doesn't display. Then I click the PERT Entry Sheet button again, get the error message again, click OK, and the PERT entry sheet DOES show. Does anyone know why this error message displays? I've had the problem in other files too, not just this one... Thanks, Heather
  • 2. Suggestions for Project Data on WM
    Hi, Any suggestions for being able to view data from MS Project on a Windows Mobile phone? I'd like to get a list of tasks, be able to update progress, add a task but can't find anything. Thus far, I've been using my netbook but would like to have the data on my WM phone if possible. I'm using the desktop version, not the server. Thanks. Regards-Michael G.
  • 3. Project 2007 - Error Messages When Saving Files
    Hello All, We have just upgraded from Project 2003 to Project 2007. Before we did this I made sure we had SP3 for 2003 and SP1 for 2007. I also removed all passwords (I work with several integrated plans within one large plan, there are lots of different views and filters). I have been working with 2007 files this morning but did not realise that by simply hitting the Save button that my changes weren't being made. Eventually I got an error message: "Unexpected error occured during command execution. Verify that all argument names & values are correct & are of the correct type You may also have ran out of memory" I can get around this by selecting File/Save As and clicking on the file name each time but would rather fix the Save problem so that I don't lose my work. My files have also been crashing when I have been allocating resources? Thanks in advance
  • 4. Can project send email reminder of task start date?
    Thinking of using MS Project 2007 primarily as a tickler system to make sure that simple tasks occur before certain critical dates. The program needs to monitor the date/time and prompt people via email that certain deadlines are near.
  • 5. Forecasting/look Aheads
    I am curious to find if and how Projects can forecast dates by linking tasks together. Here is some back ground I have 7 sites entered in Projects all with the same tasks just different site names. We have a piling crew that we plan to move from site to site to site when completed. I have linked this one task (piles driven) to every other in the order they are to have the piles driven so that projects can "forecast" when the next site is scheduled to receive the piling crew and "forecast" the dates it will be there. Is the correct way of forecasting? Is there an easier way then linking each site to another site (keep in mind there are 7 sites with 18 tasks to be completed on each site). Help please. I can't anything in any of the books I have purchased about forecasting or looking ahead, oh and my schedule is not resource loaded.

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...

Thanks in advance
