  • 1. Summary tasks adding work
    I have a project where the summary tasks are adding 0.5 days to the Work of the detail tasks. I have removed resources and changed duration to 0 - the summary task still shows 0.5 days of work. Any idea on how to fix?
  • 2. Microsoft Project - Is it possible to set the duration to milisec.
    I am a custom machine builder. I would like to use Microsoft Project to develop timming charts for the equipment. The actions/motions I would like to identify in my chart have time durations that may range from .001 seconds to 60 minutes. Is it possible to change the duration to reflect the specified user units?
  • 3. actual work entries
    does anyone know how to clear actual work entries. seesm that we can input 0, but not clear them out, and not clearing them out effects the schedule - any help is appreciated.
  • 4. Milestone date calculation logic
    Hi, I am trying to understand how milestone (0 duration tasks) dates are determined. I want to set milestones to portray this sort of situation 1 MILESTONE Start process Mon 1 2 tasks.... on Mon, Tue, Wed 3 MILESTONE End process Wed 3 4 MILESTONE Start process Thu 4 5 tasks... on Thu, Fri 6 MILESTONE End process Fri 5 I find I get varying results depending on my use of predecessors. If the milestone does not have a successor then it is assigned the same date as the predecessor task. That works well in the case of task 6 above as the milestone is dated Fri 5. However, when the milestone has both a predecessor and a successor it is assigned the predecessor date +1. So, in the case of task 3 above it gets the date Thu 4. Sometimes I can work around the second situation to achieve a date of Wed 3 by marking task 3 as a milestone but assigning a duration of 1 day. However, in other cases if I do that then task 3 remains on Thu 4 and tasks 1 and 2 are made a day later (Tue 2, Wed 3 and Thu 4). Any suggestions or advice? Thank you, Annabel

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...
