Adjust_Dates macro for Project 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • OK - you both got me going.  I tried it in MSP 2007 Pro and it worked fine.  Then I tried it in MSP 2010 Pro and the Alert button doesn't do anything other than click.  Go figure. 

    I also agree with Ralph - some of the older features are great.  There are a few that were in MSP 2007 that did not make it to 2010 that I wish they would bring over.  One of the ones that my clients and myself used a lot was the macro that would change the duration values to the same value (ie:  all hours or all days).

  • Just in case you haven't fount it, Ellen, the Format Duration macro is available in Project 2010.  You need to right-click in a ribbon and choose Customize the ribbon.  In the dialog, select Macros from the drop-down in Commands, and select Format_duration and arrow it to the right (You might have to create a new group to hold the macros).  You should now find it in the Macros group in the ribbon (View ribbon on my set-up).

  • Hmmm.  I think you may be seeing the Format_Duration macro from earlier installations, Mike.  I have a "clean" installation (no prior versions of Project installed) and I don't have the macro.

  • OK, Julie, that's where it must have come from - it works in 2010 though ;)  Are you referring to Project 2010 Standard version?

  • Hi Mike,

    No, I use the Professional version. I believe both versions of Project 2010 (Standard and Pro) in a "clean" installation are "macro-less."

  • OK, Julie.

  • Yes the newer versions are macroless, but as Mike says, teh original macro still works if you can copy t from an older version of Proejct. Otherwise teh macro is relatively simple, so what are you trying to do Ellen?
