    Hi All ! Am kinda new to the community, recently started working with Project03. Any how, I am trying to combine my calender with various projects and cant seem to get the calender to somehow differenciate the project either by color, fonts, anything. Any help on where I could research this would be very muich appreciated. Thanks in advance! SixFlores
  • 2. Does resource availiability default settings in Project 2003?
    I am using Project 2003 and was shocked to see that in the resource usage page all of my resources were red indicating that they were over allocated. Upon further investingation I found that the availability dates for some resources were set for 1 year and some were set at N/A. Is this a default setting? Do I have to go back every year and change this or is there a way to change it and make it open ended? PS In case it makes a difference my resources are coming from the enterprise resource pool.
  • 3. Summary Task Reports
    If I assign resources (work, material, and cost) to different tasks and then want to run a cost report at the summary task level, will I be able to seperate out the different type of resources to see each cost individually? For example, the total material costs for the summary task or the total work costs for the same summary task. Regards, Rachel
  • 4. Tracking Table
    I have switched to the tracking table on Microsoft Project. I have entered 100% in the complete field for two tasks. My act. dur is 5.28 days. I dont understand how it is 5.28 days when they act duration for one task is 1 day and the other task is 4 days. The remaining duration is 51.72 days. Where are these decimals coming from? I read somewhere the actual duration = duration * percent complete, but I'm coming up with 3.55. My percent complete is 71. I did 5 * .71.
  • 5. Fractional Durations in Summary Tasks
    I have just started using MS Project and I am having a problem with fractional totals showing up in the summary tasks even though I have been working in whole or half days. I would expect thhe durations to be either whole numbers or with a extra 0.5 . Instead I end up with durations like 5.167 or 3.875. I have looked for readily apparent problems but I used only whole or 0.5 days for durations and all resources are 100 percent commited. I can go back throuugh the individual task and find the fractions but have no idea how they changed away form what I had entered. Thank you for any help with this.

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...
