grouping RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a group definition set up for a custom field.  Works great.  The title of that group field (when the grouping is chosen) shows up as a summary level for those activities.  However, in random places the summary level does not show 100% complete even though all activities under it are 100%.

    Any thoughts?

  • Hi Penny,

    Welcome to this Microsoft Project forum:)

    The commonest cause of this is the presence of a milestone under the summary.  That must be marked 100% complete for the summary to respond.

    Hope this helps - please let us know how you get on :)

  • Thanks for the assistance.  This is not the case however. All activities under the summary level are showing 100%.  That is why it is so weird that the summary level remains 0.

  • Penny,

    What type and category is your custom field?  Is it a calculated field, text field, number?

  • It is a custom text field

  • plclem,

    Somehow I missed your answer to my question and I apologize for not responding sooner.  I cannot recreate the issue you are describing.  Would it be possible to send the file and I can look at it?  If it is possible, send it to:

  • Is it possible that you have Calculation set to Manual for this project?
