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.

dont forget excel only can do math on decimal numbers. you can put A in a

I have an ePM user asking why if he enters a project task in PWA does

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.
