  • 1. Time Issue
    I am Ph.D. student (cancer cell biology) and am new to Project 2007. The issue I am having is that every task is a fixed duration and not effort driven. Most tasks in a lab are you start something and then you have to wait. Therefore, a task might require 3 days to complete because of the wait times. These wait times make it possible to overlap multiple tasks in any given day. The question is: Is there a wait to uncouple the length of time a task requires from the resource time devoted to it. For example, a procedure takes 3 days (72 hours) but it only requires about 10 total hours of my time spread over those three days. How do I set Project to model this? Thanks, Adrian.
  • 2. Changing task type "fix duration" to "fix work"
    Hi MSp gurus, I'am new in this forum - it is a great opportunity to learn MSP, and to become acquainted with it's caveats ;-) I have a complex schedule - only tasks and durations no resource assignments. Unfortunately the guy creating the schedule entered for all tasks start and end dates. Now I want to change "fix duration" to "fix work". When I select all tasks and change in the schedule/task tab the task type accordingly only the type of basic tasks are changed, not the type of the summary tasks. How can I change all summary task types easily? THx for your help and time Michael
  • 3. Page setup 11x17
    I cannot find 11x17 paper size in page setup, there seems to be every size except 11x17, how do i change this to the correct setting?
  • 4. Protected actuals missing
    We use managed time periods with MSPS '03. I ran across a project that stopped showing up in the OLAP cube so I started digging into it a little further and noticed that the project actuals in the project plan are all zero (0) now even though the actual work has time it. I've tried synching with actuals and it does it but they are still 0. There's no time outstanding and this only started happening a couple of weeks ago and the project is several months old. Any ideas on how to get the protected actuals back out there? I'm figuring once the protected actuals get out there the OLAP problem should resolve itself too. If that's a bad assumption I'd I'm ears on what we can do to fix that too. Thanks Rob
  • 5. Resource driven activity
    To all Please forgive this newby question but I have been trying for a while to figure it out with little success. I have an activity : lets say the activity is to move a pile of gravel. The pile is 10 tons and I can move 1 ton per day on average. How do I create this activity in project where i can enter the tons and the resource to move the pile and it will give me a duration. The next activity after that one is another pile that is a different tonnage (say 12.6 tons). The question is .. where do I put the tonnage into the activity? Is it a material resource or something along those lines.. it is not very clear in MS Project where you can place the amount within the activity? AHGA!

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...
