  • 1. Resource Assignments View
    Hi, is there a way in PWA, in Resource Assignments view to increase the number of resources we can view at the time. Actually, when I select every one in my department it is not possible to see them all together. Thank you, Andrea
  • 2. Report problems
    Hi, I have some users who want to take the output of a custom report preview and save it electronically (i.e. as a word document or as a delimited text file), only there are no options from the report preview to do this. Any ideas? Jonathan
  • 3. How do I set up an MS Project where resources are working on the .
    I need to set up an MS Project where multiple resources are working on the same tasks, but in very different ways. For instance, I work on task A for 8 weeks, Danny works on it for 12 weeks. Paul works on it for 3 weeks. The task will be gated by Danny especially since we do not collaborate - our individual work is completely separate. I can only see how Project will handle a task being reduced with mutiple resources. In our case, we cannot work on eachother's parts. I have set up the Project to show my tasks, Danny's tasks and Paul's tasks separately with the same task names that are not linked in any way. But then the task complete dates must be manually determined by he who works on it the longest (assuming we all start at the same time). There's gotta be a better way!

  • 4. Project 4.1 (95)
    hello friends... I wont to use MS Project 4.1 (95) with Windows XP (if it's possible). At the Internet I read the MS Project 4.1 (95) has problems to install and start underWindows XP operatingsystem. I heart installation with the kompatibility option of XP seams to work. But after starting Project 4.1 (95) nothing happens. Only a error message appears. Has anyone good experience with installing MS Projekt 4.1 (95) on Windows XP? Erik
  • 5. Exporting data ( BaseLine, Programmed and Actual ) to MS-Project 2003 std
    Please, it is very important to us : I am sending information to MS-Project 2003 std from my system, but at the end MS-Project are making equal my Programmed Date and Actual Date. To me, Base Line, Programmed Date and Actual Date could be all different. My Goal I set at Base Line. Innitialy Base Line and Programmed Date are the same, with the same date. During the project, if we need to reprogram some task, we will do it at Programmed Date. And my actual position is at Actual Date. I am sending to MS Project in this order : - Task - BaseLineStart, BaseLineFinish - Start, Finish, Duration ( called Programmed Date ) - Actual Start, Actual Finish, Actual Duration - PercentComplete Is it ok ( names and sequence ) ? My Problem : MS-Project convert Actual Date with the same date that Programmed Date ( Start, Finish ). To me, those Values could be different. I need to keep this difference and get the impact on the activities ( upper level ). I have at my system some Performance Indicators that will compare BaseLine x Programmed and BaseLine x Actual when I return with the MS-Project results. Please, what I need to do in order to it ? Thank You Ren

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...
