  • 1. fitting an MS Project file to a wide format output
    I'm new to MS Project and I have a request from a client to tile a multi-page document onto one continuous sheet. I need to know how to fit a MS project document to one page, so that the sheets prints out continuously (ie: instead of printing 10 A3 pages, I want to print a document that is 420mm wide x 2970mm high.) any help would be super appreciated, because as always in this industry the job was required yesterday.
  • 2. Tracking with a Baseline
    While reading the features of MS Project I understood that it is possible to save upto 10 baselines for a single project. Is it possible to track the current schedule with any of the baseline saved? If so how to do it? Please guide me. Meena
  • 3. How to send alerts?
    I have been reading about MS project and its features. I wonder if there is an option to send alerts to the employees of the company regarding the progress of the project through outlook express. If there is, then how to integrate outlook express with MS Project and how to send these alerts? Meena
  • 4. Rolling up baseline, fixed and Variance costs
    Being a novice with Project, I just want to input estimate and actual costs and obtain a variance for each task and a roll up for each group of tasks and the whole project. To do this, I found I had to use Baseline cost for estimate, fixed cost for actual, and then calculate the variance. This enabled me to input the estimate(baseline) and actual costs(fixed) and obtain the variance for each task, but I am unable to rollup the totals by group and the overall project. Any advice would be much appreciated. Ed

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...
