  • Hi,

    I am not able to reproduce the issue using below steps. Let me know if I am missing anything

    1) Created a excel workbook with two column 1) Task name (value:task 1) 2) Link (Value:http://srvrname.level03.lv2.registerdoman-77PL-Task-11212-HLLrequirements.html) and saved the workbook

    2) Open the above excel workbook in Project 2010. Imported the data using Import Wizard

    3) Mapped Task name to Name field and Link to Text1 

    4) it showed the full URL in text 1 : 


    5) Also tried with mapping Link to Hyperlink column and URL showed up correctly.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for quick response.

    But when i tried with hyperlink column it again truncate the link and even it show in a hyperlink icon instead of cell value.

    I've not only the one column, i've lots of different column whose are mapped to different data type, using a predefined Base template (custome template), Acutally I'm creating a project plan from a Excel file.

  • Utshek,

    You are welcome!

    The indicator column (1st column) always shows the hyperlink Icon. Try to add Hyperlink and Hyperlink address column and check if that displays the full URL

    Right click on any of the column >> insert column.
