How to customize column width in Ressource Usage report ?


When printing the Workload, Ressource Usage report, some of the durations 
are stated as #####.##. I tried to make the font smaller but it did'ent help.

How do I make the report readable?

I am using MS Project 2007 SP2.

If you goto Reports, Custom
you can see all of the built-in reports and you can see what they are made 
of and you will see that they use a filter and a table (and other settings 
and stuff).
The column width of each field is a property of the table.
Find the report that you are interested in, then find the table that it 
uses, then edit the table and set the width to whatever you want, and this 
will be the width of the column in the printed report.
How to edit the table?

Bertrand --

First of all, by default the Resource Usage report shows Work hours and not 
Duration values.  Have you edited this Report, by chance, or do you actually 
mean Work and not Duration?  Regardless, the way to remove the #####.## 
symbols is a bit elusive.  Here's what to do:

1.  Click Report - Reports.
2.  Double-click the Workload section.
3.  Single-click the Resource Usage report and then click the Edit button.
4.  In the Crosstab Report dialog, click the Details tab.
5.  Click the Date Format pick list and select a date format that will make 
each column wider, such as the Jan 27, '02 format, for example.
6.  Click the OK button.
7.  Double-click the Resource Usage report.

If this does not solve the problem, choose a wider date format in step #5 
above.  Please let us know if this helps.

Custom Entity Relationship CRM 3.0
I have created a new custom entity (A) for which I need to create two referential relationships to other custom entities (B) & (C). (A) is the primary entity in both cases. The relationship between (A) and (B) acts normally. The relationship between (A) and (C) doesn't. When I try to add a (C) record from (A), (A) displays two records in the (C) lookup. One "record" displays data from system fields (created on and status). The second "record" displys data from the primary field. I am not able to access (C) record from the associated view in (A), but I can a...

Tracking customer orders when receiving stock
With our current POS system we can place items on order for a particular customer (whether we are holding the stock or not) and when we generate purchase orders the system automatically pops up letting us know we have pending orders for customers. We can then generate a purchase order based on this information. When we receive the stock, we can print out a report for that order that lists what stock needs to be allocated to which customers. Is there a way with RMS that we can do this? Unfortunately it is a regular occurance that our stock levels can be incorrect, for instance we may have a 0 ...

bin number on sop report
Hi all we are using gp 9.0 and would like to add bin numbers to the sop blank invoice form and are having some problems does anyone know how this can be done ? Hi Steve, Due to a report writer limitation of only being able to have one 1 to many relationship from the SOP_LINE_WORK table, it would take a fair amount of work to add the bin. Currently the Serial/Lot information links to the SOP_LINE_WORK table and that is a 1 to many relationship.
