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" cell. The tasks are setup up differently. Some are Fixed Work, some are Fixed Duration. I believe all have the e...

Hello, I've spent 3 days trying to understand what I'm doing wrong.....Here is the summary of my problem. I have a form named 'frm_EfficiencyStats' and a subform within the form named 'qry_Total hours subform' (the subform is based on a query). The form contains a text box (for date) which is bound to a table 'tbl_EfficiencyStats'. I would like to be able to enter a date in the text box on my form, and display the records in the subform based on the date I entered in the text box. The subform will only pull records from my table based on the date. Here are th...

Hello, I have an ePM user asking why if he enters a project task in PWA does it not check the resource max units allocation the same way as when he enters a task in Project Professional.

Create a task under the same project in PWA, submit and approve the task.

We have switched from using serial numbers to lot numbers on a number of our products, as we must track additional data with each item. The only problem that we (i.e. I) didn't forsee was that you can have multiple identical lot numbers. I know this is obvious, but it just didn't click. Otherwise lot numbers makes perfect sense for us. Can I make the lot # field a primary key, or otherwise restrict it to unique entries? The way we're set up, we dont have any items that would require duplicate lot numbers, nor would we. Thanks for any thoughts. GP 9.0, SQL Server 2000. ...

I wonder if anyone can tell me if it is possible to auto proect cells after data has been entered?

The second table is reliant of some data from the first table. The intersecting result in the first table turns currency amounts, which is what I want.
