  • 1. Convert the units of Work from Dys to Hrs?
    How do I convert the units of Work from Dys to Hrs? I see where you can run a similar macro for Duration, but I need to convert the Work field? Also, can someone please define (for my simple mind) how the following are being figured: I have a task with a Duration of 19 dys. I have 7 resources dedicated 100% to the completion of that activity. Resulting "Work" is 133 days or 1064 hours. I can't seem to figure out the math. Thanks in advance! Brad
    Help. When I do a save as to Excel it doesn't indent my tasks (WBS) like it does in project. I got it to work when I did a Save As to HTML, but not Excel. Using same map.
  • 3. Project allocating duration/resources
    I am trying to allocate a task which a team of three people will take 1 day to complete when working together. One of the team has a Calendar which allows him to work only on weekends. Trouble is when I allocate the resources after setting the duration, project resets the duration to several days and if I then reset the duration to 1 day, it recalculates two of the workers to zero time. What do I need to do to get Progect to accept that it is three people working 1 day and because 1 resource has a Calendar constrant that it needs to set the date according to that Calendar? Thanks in anticipation.

  • 5. Project timescale Half-Day?
    Is is possible in MS-Project to set the timescale to half day increments? I have a project where I work during my day and part of my team on other side of world sleeps then visa-versa. Tracking the working day using half-day resolution is the best I could hope for. TIA

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...
