    If you select a blank row in any task view, such as the Gantt Chart view, both of the buttons will be grayed out.  If you select any regular task, summary task, or milestone task, the buttons will be activated.  Hope this helps.

  • ConstructionPM1899,

    First of all what version of Project are you using? Second, it if fully updated? Note, if it is a subscription form (e.g. Project Online or Project 365) it is automatically updated.

    Assuming Project is fully updated, which "buttons" are greyed out? Are they the options you see for Schedule mode in the Task Information window General tab?

    Are you perhaps looking at the task information for an external task?

    More information is needed in order for us to help you.
