Mass Update a New Enterprise Custom Field in Project Server 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have created a new project-levl enterprise custom field in Project Server 2007 and made it as a required field. What is the best way to do a mass update of the new field so that the existing projects will have a default value?

    rgds,

  • Hi Noynoy,

    In project server 2007, you have to deal with such situation using PSI. there is no OOB way to bulk edit the Project custom field. I have found one 3rd party tool which can do this for you, this incase you dont want to use PSI and ok to spend money. But using the PSI to edit/publish projects is also not a big deal if you, or any of your team member, have programming experience

    For PSI, see this Brain's post:

    For 3rd Party tool (presenting information as-is, no claims from my side)

    Hope this helps.
