  • 1. IE7 problem when checking out documents in MS project
    When I try to check out a document using IE7 nothing happens. When I uninstall IE7 and use version 6 and checkout a document everything works fine. Can someone help me with the problem? We would like to still be able to use IE7.
  • 2. Stripping out All But Filtered Info
    We have a large schedule that includes internal dates that we track as well as resource hours, rates, total costs, etc. We made a custom filter to provide only pertinent data to our customer and we convert that into a PDF file. Our customer wants that data in Microsoft Project. How can we provide this to them without all of our proprietary information without going to a lot of trouble each time? Can we take a snapshot of our filtered custom view and save that as a separate MS Project file?
  • 3. PWA Error: error updating to project
    I have a user connecting to project web access to accept or reject task updates from his recources. After he accepts or rejects all task updates submitted by his resources he hits the update button to open project and apply the changes to the project plan. Once the user hits update on the PWA page he gets the following error. VBSCRIPT: Microsoft Office Project Web Access 2003 error updating to project Project has taken to long to open. If Project is not running, manually open project and wait untill it is running before trying your request again. Click ok and it brings you back to the update screen. If you open project the application first then hit update, it will note the updates in the project plan. But when you hit save it appears as if it saved the updates to the plan but when you close the plan and go back into project web access the updates you accepted arstill there awating to be updated. Please Help.....
  • 4. Master Project Resource Names
    I have a Master Project with about 30 sub projects linked into it. In MS Project 2003 I could assign a resource name in the resource name column. Now that I have brought this file into MS Project 2007 these resources do not appear in this column and I can not input any data into this column. Anyone else having this issue with a master project?

change the legend in Project

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...
