PS2010: I cannot change the default booking Type for some resources.- RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,
     
    I have a customer that told me this question, and I wonder if you know why it is happening...
     
    He works with EPM 2010 (SP1 + Latest CU)

    Repro steps:
     
    1. He open Project Pro 2010 and open a MPP file (This project was created in another instance with PS2010 and he saved it as MPP for savingand publish it in this environment also with EPM 2010)
     
    2. He save and publish the project plan
     
    3. I take for granted or done ... (without seeing it yet) that has changed resource mapping and enterprise resources ... but ...
     
    Then, when he inserts in the current view the column named "booking type" he cannot select (it appears grayed out) commited or booking...both options are disabled.
     
    NOT for all the resources, only for a few...
     
    Do you know what could be the cause?  I suspect it could be that those resources do not exist or have real work...

    Thank you in advance for your time and responses!
     
    Best regards,

    Pedrof.-

    Is the customer adding the Booking Type column in the Resource Sheet view?  If not, that might explain the source of the problem.  Let us know and we will try to help.

  • Hi Dale,

    Here, I can confirm, you... when I enable this resource view: the Booking Type column is disabled (BUT the issue is not for all the resources)

    Any help will be very well received as appreciated.

    Regards,

    Pedrof.-

    What is you use the Build Team dialog instead of using the Resource Sheet view?  Are you able to change the Booking Type value for every resource in the Build Team dialog?  Let us know and we will try to help.

    Wow, this is really a brain teaser.  Do you see the same problem in every project or is it only in this project?  Do you only see the problem on your computer, or do all of your PMs see the same problem?  If you log onto the computer of another user, do you still see the problem?  Are there other problems with the project, such as that the project will not publish?  Let us know and we will try to help.

    It sounds like the project might have gotten corrupted somehow or somewhere.  Way to go, my friend!  :)
