    I created a visual Report using MS Project 2010 and exported the data into Excel.

    Then I used the field picker to add some more fields.

    Then I created Graphs in Excel but I want to add some more field into my Report (that I previously hadn't selected).

    How can I do this without having to create a new Excel Report?

    Hello PS community.

    In error, a former PS Admin inadvertently associated the Resource field of Team Name, with the lookup table of State, when they initially began their Project Server instance.  Fast forward a couple years to today and now they want to actually use theTeam Name field for their resources.  As we’ve been told, once an association with the Team Name field is made, it cannot be undone, but is anyone familiar with any method that can break this association?

    Short of creating a new instance, I am not familiar with any way do do this.  Normally we could just change the values within the associated lookup table, but because they made the additional mistake of using theState lookup table, those default values cannot be changed.  Thus the reason I need to break this association.  This is seasoned Production environment so creating a new environment isn’t necessarily an option.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    For some reason, a new behavior has recently started in our PWA 2010 environment. When I add a new task to the bottom of the schedule, it doesn't take, and then the next task will (effectively replacing the previous task I entered). Basically, every other task gets entered. Has anybody seen this before?

    We are developing Disaster recovery environment which will be used for, if Production environment will have disaster then DR site will be up within seconds with same data replicated from Production environment.

    I have installed MS SQL Server 2008 R2 in C: Drive and all databases are currently reside in the same drive.

    Now I want to change from C: to D: Drive and all further Data & logs to be saved in D: Drive because C Drive won't replicate to DR environment due to Windows is installed on the same drive.

    Please guide me, which databases to be transferred and their procedure to achieve DR environment readiness.

    One of my coworkers is trying to export a .mpp file, and gets the following error: "ALL TASKS FILTER CAN NOT BE COPIED,
    RENAMED OR DELETED" I have searched the internet and can not find any reference to this error. He is using MS Project Server 2013. Does anyone have any ideas what is causing the error? Do you have any suggestions how to resolve it. I know they are using enterprise shared resources, but I still cant narrow down the source of the problem.

  • 05/12/16--09:53: Task Status update comment
  • When a resource sends a status update they have a chance to enter a comment.
    When the PM accepts the update they have the chance to enter a comment.

    My question is where is the comment field stored? (PS or SP) what table or list?

  • 05/12/16--11:45: CAL for Project Server
  • Do we need CAL for PWA if the user is just an active enterprise resource (so we can do resource levelling) in project server but don't use PWA, Project Pro nor ProjectSite?

    1. How are instances of Microsoft Project and Project Professional (not Project Server) licensed when installed on a server?
      Can a Project or Project Professional license cover it  -or-  is it like instances of Office installed on servers where every device that has access to the server has to be licensed for the edition and version of Office that is installed on the server they are accessing?

    I have a Master Project in Project Server 2013.

    Whenever I try to save the project it shows "Microsoft Project Stopped Working", I tried clearing the cache folder but still it doesn't work.

    Is there any patch available which needs to be installed in individual machine?

    Please help.

    I have a standalone project 2010. I have used "Change Working Time" and created a new calendar.

    I have chosen the new calendar, with work time mon-fri, 7-11 and 12-16, as my new Project calendar.

    Have made changes in the project options, setting Default start time and Default end time accordingly.

    This is a 2010 project so I also changed the settings for non-working times in the Gantt-chart.

    Before I used the Standard calendar mon-fri, 8-12 and 13-17.

    The tasks that were planned with the old project calendar doesn’t change when choosing the new one.

    These tasks still starts at 08:00 and ends at 17:00 and I can’t change their start time to 07:00.

    Why not?

    If I add new tasks they start at 07:00 and ends at 16:00.

    I realize that the resource calendars could be a solution, but we don’t use the field “Resources” at all, instead we use a standard Text-field for that information.

    I can of course replace all old tasks with new ones, but have I missed something?

    Hi everyone

    We have been using Project Server 2010 in a hosted environment for sometime and have now migrated everything to an on-premise system. All in all, the migration has gone well with the exception of the project workflows which are no longer working.

    In the hosted environment, we had the "Dynamic Workflow" solution starter installed and configured a simple workflow including approvals. After migrating the 5 DB's we then also installed and deployed said solution starter to the new application server. However, whenever a project is submitted for approval we now get the following error and workflow won't progress:

    From the ULS I have retrieved the following error messages:

    1) WinWF Internal Error, terminating workflow Id# 15b13123-a92a-4ce9-959a-7c6b7428a511

    2) System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. 
    at System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityExecutor`1.Execute(T activity, ActivityExecutionContext executionContext)
    at System.Workflow.ComponentModel.CompositeActivityExecutor`1.Execute(T activity, ActivityExecutionContext executionContext) 
    at System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityExecutor`1.Execute(Activity activity, ActivityExecutionContext executionContext)   
    at System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityExecutorOperation.Run(IWorkflowCoreRuntime workflowCoreRuntime)    
    at System.Workflow.Runtime.Scheduler.Run()

    The same error also occured after I created a new project workflow using the solution starter and associated it to a new Enterprise Project Type.

    As I was searching for a solution to the problem, I realized that the workflow functions properly if I'm not including any approvals, just moving from stage to stage. However, that won't do the trick for us as we do require approvals between project phases.

    Thank you for your help!



    P.S. I wasn't sure to which forum I should post this, Project or SharePoint...

    What are the best practices to put abandon a Project or to put a Project On Hold in Project Server if in both the cases the resources are required to be freed up and also the the amount of Project Completed should stay as it is (i.e if i want to abandon a project , i may need to store how much of my planned work was completed and how how much investments i may have done till the time when it was abandoned)

    Hi Guru's,

    I recently got a question on my blog that I couldn't reproduce so I thought, let's ask the experts :). Here's the question:

    When I select the materials in Project Server 2013 I get message “There is no availability data for the resource you have selected. This is commonly for cost and materials resources without enterprise resource calendar”

    Does anyone know what causes the behaviour and how I can avoid it in the future?

    Kind regards,

    Hi gang,

    What is your opinion/ comments with regards to setting the "Locked" field in PWA > Schedule versus setting the Published field (in Pro) to 'No', to prevent users from reporting work against tasks that they are assigned to?

    What's the best method to move a existing SharePoint project site created from PWA new project type to a different location without breaking the Synchronize Project Web App Permissions to Project Site?

    For example: ProjectA -- http//server/PWA/ProjectA

    Move to a sub site of MasterA -- http//server/PWA/MasterA/ProjectA

    Any input is welcome. Please let me know if there is a different way of doing this.

    does anybody has a good solution for renaming resource in Project Server 2013 after an upgrade from 2010?

    Our problem is that that naming for resources is different after the upgrade from 2010. In 2010, we were able to type/specify the Resource Name for each resource. In 2010, the Resource name will be pulled from the AD.

    Now we have 2 different naming conventions (First Name<blank>Last Name for 2010 created users and Last Name; First Name for 2013 created users).

    We would like to modify all 2010 created users to have the same naming convention as in 2013.

    Many thanks for you help.
