    Simple answer, "no". Custom field lookup values are singular, unless you create lookup values that contain multiple entries. For example, you can do something like this

    I don't use Project Server or Project Online so I don't what may be possible with Project Server or Project Online as suggested by Rajkumar Allepu in his response to your other post.

    Field "Text1" (or field "Outline Code1") uses the substitution of values (Item_1, Item_2, Item_3).
    Standard tools allow you to select only one item.
    Is it possible to make it possible to select several elements in the "Text1" field (or the "Outline Code1" field)?
    In the "Resource Name" field for a single task, you can select several resources, and in the "Text1" field (or the "Outline Code1" field) you cannot select multiple resources.
