  • Hello Meru94

    There are many good books on MS Project client and I have read many of them and many more that I haven't.  Many of the authors are good friend of mine.  However my long time favorite and the gold standard in project are books by Eric Uyttewaal.   Forecast Scheduling 2013 and Scheduling Dynamics 2007 and 2010.  He is coming out with an new books called "Forecasting Programs" and can be pre-order at ProjectProCorp.com.  Eric is taking project the next level and also showing methods to integrate with Agile.

  • Eric's books are excellent guides for users.

    For some targeted books at the advanced functionality you seek, consider the following:

    • Ismet Kocaman's ebook on using custom field formulas (~35 USD):

    Using Microsoft® Office Project’s Built-in Functions in Formulas - Advanced Formula Techniques for MS Project Experts (http://www.ismetkocaman.com/Formulas/eBook2.html)

    • Rod Gill's paperback on VBA (~65 USD):

    VBA Programming for Microsoft Project '98 through 2010 with an Introduction to VSTO (amazon.com/Programming-Microsoft-Project-through-Introduction/dp/1934240214)

    (An older edition of Rod's book seems to have been incorporated into the Technet references, though I don't have a link.)
