  • 1. Drive Predecessors Based on End Date of Task
    I have a task that needs to finish on a certain date and I have a bunch of predecessors that must happen prior to the final task finishing. How can I drive all the precedessors start dates based off the final task? This is kind of the opposite of how project works, I know, but basically I want to know when all of the work has to start based off the final end date. Here is an example of what I am asking, just in case I am not clear. Task 1 (5 days) Task 2 (10 days) Final task must finish on specific day I want project to move task 2 automatically to start 10 days prior to the specific final task being completed and task 1 to start 5 days prior to this. Any way to do this wth project?
  • 2. Inserted Sub-Projects won't unlink
    Hi, I have a master plan with some sub-projects inserted. I want to remove the links but retain the data so as to make a true consolidated plan. When I clear the links to the underlying plans, the plans still remain linked?? This seems to happen on any set of files I test the approach on. This problem does not occur on my colleague's pc which like mine is running Project 2003
  • 3. Change Work field default to change hours, not duration?
    When you change the Work field, a drop-down list will appear with the option to Decrease/Increase the number of work hours but keeps the task duration the same. I'm in IT so very few resources have a 100% allocation to one project. An 8 hour activity may take 2 peopel 4 days. I'm not about to try to calculate resource % allocations per every task to eventually come up with the duration AND work hours I need. My scheduling effort would increase 3 fold. I've been told that there is a way to change to default so that, when you update the Work field, it will not recaluculate the Duration field. We can't figure out how to get that done. Does anyone else know?
  • 4. Not printing proper # of columns from page setup
    Using Project 2003, and the page setup gives you the option of printing a set number of columns. Only Project chooses to ignore your request! Trying to print 8 columns of data (not unreasonable) but can't. Please help, before this over priced piece, drives me insane.

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...
