  • 1. Calculations within Project to determine task duration
    Can someone help please. I am trying to use project to schedule work through a machine. Specifically, I would like to enter the component "cycle time" in one column, the number of components in the "batch" in another column and have a third column calculate the task time to process the batch of components through that machine ie the cycle time x the batch size = the task time? Thanks in advance - Mark
  • 2. Calender View Content
    VERSION 2003: Is there any way to modify the info shown in the calander view? All I want is the task name, I don't want the duration and I'd love to color code items or change font size. If not available in version 2003 is it available in 2007?

  • 4. Question about setting up a view
    Hi there I'm using Project 2003 and want to set up the following but not sure how... I've added the resource initials column to my table entry view (fine) and have displayed resource initials on the Gantt chart instead of names (fine too) - but want to be able to save this view and use it in other files but not sure how to do it. I also want to include a new field in the view called Status that has two options in a drop down list that say 'approved' or 'not approved' with a smiley face and a sad face. Any help gratefully received - I'm thinking I need a custom view or a custom table but not sure which or how to do either! Thanks v. much Anita

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...
