Function works in MS Project Pro 2010, but not in MS Project Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an custom enterprise text field in Project Server 2010 that uses the "Instr" function and it works fine.  I created a local custom text field in MS Project Pro 2010 that was similar, but uses the "InstrRev" function and it works fine.  I then go to project server 2010 and try to create a custom enterprise text field using the "InstrRev" function and I get a message that says, "This formula contains errors.  Correct the formula and try again."  It's the exact same formula that I tried in project pro - copied and pasted.  Why is that?  Does Project Pro allow for a wider range of VBA functions in local custom fields than Project Server does when creating enterprise custom fields?  Is there some way around this?

  • Hi Joe,

    There is a way around it.

    Logon to MS Project Professional.

    Creat that field there

    Add Field to Enterprise while in MS Project.

    It has just worked for me.

    Please let me know if it worked for you.

    Best Regards,
