Newbie- Subtask duration not driving main task duration
Just started with Project 2007 last week and I already have an issue! Let's
say I create a task, then put some subtasks under it (indented). If I put in
a duration for one of the subtasks at 5 days, the blue bar for the subtask
extends 5 days, but the main task stays at the default 1 day. It doesn't
matter if I open a new project, open a project someone else sends me, etc.,
same thing happens. However, if I send my Project to someone else,
everything looks as it should. I assume I have some kind of formatting or
filtering issue, but I'm not experienced enough in p...Mapped vs Network drives
is there a way to show a network drive via formula when a drive is being
Different users mapping of the same drive to a various letters is causing

with a combination of cell("filename") & hyperlink function, but there has to
be an easier way.

news:3FE...Using Access with other db programs
I work for a health organization and we have upgraded to
ACCESS after years of using various other db programs.
Is it possible for me to import a DBIII file into ACCESS
and then match it to another db file? If so, how? Also,
is there a good book on ACCESS which discusses this type
of question and good overall reference once you're past
the beginner stage? Thanks.

My multithreaded program is occasionally crashing. I tend to get several

description it states

So, how do I get around this?
I'm not sure where output.c is called in my program - this is the earliest
