Are there fields that one could use for alphanumeric data that could be viewed from the Gannt and Resource Usage view RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I am using MS Project 2007 professional NOT server

    I would like to populate a field with alphanumeric data on an ongoing basis that can be viewed from the Gannt screen as well as Resource Usage. I don't want to enter it twice in both views just once in one of them and it appears in the other.

    What fields could be used for that?

    Thanks

    Thanks

    There are a very few fields that you can populate with data in a Resource view and a task view.  The Resource Name and Resource Initials field are two fields that you can add data to in a Resource view and once you have created assignments, you can see that data in the Task View.  There is another field named Phonetics that you can add to the Resource view -- add data on each resource line and then see that data in the Resource Phonetics field in a task view.  Again, it's based upon assigning the resource to the task to see the information about that resource.

    I hope this helps.

  • Hi Hotmail1,

    You can use text type field to store Alpha numeric values, they would be treated as string in case you try to run any macro on the calculation for it. Then you can refer : http://project.mvps.org/faqs.htm#Custom Fields in Tables it gives you option to copy task type fields into resource type. Hope it helps.
