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...Excel 2003 spreadsheet. I enter the any number and it is entered.
If I enter a number into a cell it is put in like a decimal. For example, if
I enter 10 it is put in as .1 500 is entered as a 5
Goto Tools>Options and on the Edit tab you should see The Fixed Decimal
Places box checked. Uncheck it.

...Report: Dollar Value of Added Inventory??
Is there a report that can be run daily which gives us the dollar value of
inventory added (received) into the system on that day? Knowledge Base
article #869856 suggests running item/value list report and item/item
movement report subtracting the second report from the first, but doesn't
account for what was added that day.

I wondered if there was a way to replace a value generated by a formul
in a cell with a symbol or an image, or even to automatically change th
color of the value in the cell.
To give you a better idea:
I want to calculate the change between to sets of values as
percentage and then replace the actual value eg. 10% with a symbol t
denote a positive or negative change (maybe an arrows up and down).
Firstly, is this at all possible?
Any help with this would be much appreciated, or if you have a bette
idea on how I could present this I would love to hear it too.
