Why is Actual Work updated when entering time into Work Field?
We're using MS Project 2007 and seeing that sometimes when time is entered
into the Work field for a task, that task's Actual Work is updated to the
same value entered in the Work field. This happens to multiple resources,
but only on some of their tasks and not on others. For example, for the
weeks of 1/24 and 1/31, whatever hours I schedule (enter in the "work" cell
in the Resource Usage View) for a given task also appears in the "actual"
The tasks are setup up differently. Some are Fixed Work, some are Fixed
Duration. I believe all have the e...Cell format newbie query
I have a worksheet where all the cells in a column are formatted as text but
there are numbers entered in the column.
Changing the format of the column, or even any individual cell, to number,
does not remove the triangle in the cell top left corner.
What should I be doing to fix the situation?
One quick way:
Select a blank cell
Select the range with data in it
Edit > Paste Special
You'll note that this converts the format of the selected range to

Is there a way to make historical timecharts in Visio? There seems to be a

option or setting to get around this?
In fact, Visio is limited to Jan 1, 1900 or later. That is "0" in the date

You'll have to draw them "by hand"...or try to map past dates to future ones
and be creative with labeling.
