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.

at all. Does anyone have any experience with this

I have a cell with multiple lines (alt/enter line breaks)

So I see only the first line and that's how I want it.
Now, when I edit this cell the word wrapping gets
automatically enabled (checked box) and row height
gets adjusted to fit the text.
It seems alt/enter breaks auto enable the wrapping,
but what I need visible is a clean one line row no matter
what text I put in.
