  • 1. What to do with completed projects in server?
    Ibailyn, Did you try to customize the default PWA view(s) to contain a filter that only shows projects where the %Complete is not equal to100. Earl "lbailyn" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > wrote in message news: XXXX@XXXXX.COM ... > When a project is completed that's in project server, I'd like to have it no longer appear on the task and project center pages by default. But I would like the completed version to remain in the database so that it can be reviewed if needed. Is there an easy way to do this? I looked through the version settings, but it wasn't clear whether this is the best way to do this? Or should I use some kind of custom field and then change the task and project center views? I'm basically trying to figure out the easiest way to set this up.

  • 3. Can a custom field in a template be set as required
    Can a custom field added to a template be set to be required? I know that enterprise fields can be set as required fields, but I am unable to locate how to set a custom field in a template as a required field Thank

First try upgrading MDAC to 2.8 on the offending machine. I recommend making
2.8 your standard all the way around.

Project Pro2003 which have been published to the Project Server.  When I try
to view the 'Projects' via PWA, I receive a page that says, "Loading Data"
and then it goes back to my Home page.  The behavior occurs when I try to
view my 'Tasks'.  However, when I logon to another workstation in the same
domain, I able to view the 'Tasks' and 'Projects' with no problem.  All of
the machines I am using are Win2k Pro sp4 using IE6 sp1.  Anyone have any
ideas what may be causing this problem?

Thanks, Gary.  I will try that, however I am sure that the workstation that worked does not have 2.8.  Also, should I update the server as well

Gary, upgrading MDAC to 2.8 on the problem machine worked.  Thanks!  Should I update it on the project server as well

As I said, all the way around! That means servers and clients.

Should I update it on the project server as well.

1."Update All" in PWA not working well

I have just migrated project server 2003 to a new server. After it is done, 
users experience problems with the "Update All" feature in their PWA. It 
takes a long time to process and is unable to complete updates successfully. 
If the user selects only updated rows and click on "Update Selected Rows", 
there is no issue. Any idea what may be the issue? Thanks in advance

an error message: "Security Problem... Maybe the Security Certificate is out 
of date..."

Any ideas?

Thx for your help.

4.PWA 2003 - Limit Actual Work To Not Exceed Work

Is there a way in PWA 2003 to prevent users from entering more 'actual
work' than assigned to them in the 'work' field?
With my current configuration, if a user is assigned four hours work
on a task, he can still enter eight hours actual work.  Is there any
way to prevent him from doing this?  I know I could reject the time,
but since the 'work' field will also adjust to eight hours, I may not
remember he was originally assigned to four.  Furthermore, even I had
the baseline information handy, I'd still rather automate the process.

5."Does Not Contain" Filter Not Working in PWA (MSPS 2007 SP1)


I think you may have found a bug. I have just tried this on Project Server 
2007 PWA SP1 machine and I tried all the variations of text with single 
quote, double quote and without quote, the filter is not working. Moreover 
the filter "Does not contain" is not even present in the project center page 
filter, but is present only in the manage views gui.

Hopefully MVPs here can validate that this is a bug.
