  • 1. yearly calendar
    I am in need of creating a yearly calendar. I want a 24"x36" poster with jan-dec 2008 visible. Plus I need to enter data for events and appointments. Am I able to do this with Publisher? Or do I need to use another program? I tried to change the time frames plus the page set up, but when I change it to poster size, it makes each month poster size. Any suggestions?
  • 2. Project date equation
    How do I make the chart work backwards. What I mean by this is that I want to be able to put in a date by which all the sub-tasks must be completed (finish date) and have the program tell me when each task must be started. -- Sarah M.

  • 4. Help Importing Project07 into another App
    We are working with a new product called and I'm unable to import our Project 2007 files as Autotask doesn't support 2007. You can't simply save the file as a 2000-2003 file type, it had to be created in a later version of Project. I'm trying to find an easy work around so I can get all our projects into the new application. Any suggestions?
  • 5. Effort driven scheduling
    Hi, I have a basic project plan for a project that I am working on- the only resource allocated is myself. I have added timescales indicative of 'effort' rather than 'elapsed' time. I now want to add myself as a resource, but show 70% utilisation to reflect my time dedicated (as effort) to the project. However, when I add myself as a resource on the top line of the project, the end date of the project remains the same- I expected it to be slightly later, reflecting my 70% productivity rate....any ideas??

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...
