Odd Date in Client => Published DB doesn't match Reporting DB ??! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dale and colleagues,

    It seems MS Project Pro 2010 will now accept non-dates (including text such as TBD):

        

    Further, this information may be viewed, after publish, in the PWA (i.e. the published DB):

        

    Since the published DB is thought to replicate the Reporting DB (RDB), except perhaps for degree of normalization, can you tell us why the RDB doesn't show the same "date" as we see in the PWA and the client:

      test mail task 1

         10/2/2010 12:00  (start date)

         10/4/2010  12:00  (finish date)

    (print screen in next piece of thread due to limit of two uploaded images)

    See this post that might gives you some clarification about manually scheduled tasks versus reporting DB:

  • Guillaume,

    My team is so very excited at having found a great solution (task strings) by reading the information in the link you provided.  Big "win" here.  Thanks very much.
