  • 2. Tracking Resources in MS Project using Excel
    Hi Everyone, I am hoping that someone can help me. I am relatively new to project and am trying to maximize its potential in my company. What I would like to do is create timesheets which show the tasks for each resource. I could then send these to my resources who would fill them in bi-weekly. Once I had this information in the excel based timesheets, I would like to then export them to Project so that it can update the actual work completed. Is this something that is possible? Thank you, Jenny
  • 3. Sharing Resources
    How can I check if a resource I want to assign an activity is already used in another project in the same days? We have a Project Server 2003 and use Project professional 2003. If I open Organization Resource Pool, open some resources, and select Resourse Usage, there are only blank fields and the "work" column is set to 0h for all the resources, even if they are already used (importing them from project server) in many projects. We actually save projects as .mpp files. Can this be an hint to solve the problem? Is there a way to be promted for a warning when I try to assing work to a resource who is already assigned in the same days (in the same project or in a different one)? Thanks!! Mauro
  • 4. Multiple projects tracking?
    How do I track muliple projects? Each project file currently contains around 550 rows and spread over a 4-month product development cycle. Management wants to increase the efficiency and track multiple product development cycles simultaneously. I am fairly new to MS Project and have the following question; Can Project files of this size be merged accurately? Where do I go from here? (My heartbeat goes up just thinking about this, but I guess a little adrenaline adds some excitement to our day) What is the usual approach in these cases? I would very much appreciate some help. Thank you, -- GvE

change the legend in Project

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...
