project 2010 task re ordering / drag drop not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi - hoping someone can please help with the following issue.

    i'm running project 2010 connecting to project server. I have just discovered I cannot re order / drag and drop tasks to different locations.

    in project 2007 i achieve this by

    > select a task by clicking on the id  (entire task is highlighted) > hover the mouse pointer over the task until a cross arrow symbol appears > left click and drag to a new location > release left click > task has been moved to the new location

    in project 2010 i cannot get the cross arrow symbol appear! does anyone have a suggestion to resolve

    I've tried this in multiple views, including the built in gantt which uses the table named entry

    thanks

  • Hi Paul,

    Point to the row heading (ID Column) until a four-headed arrow appears, and then drag the task to where you want it in the Gantt Chart view.

    Check if this option is Activated : File->Options->Advanced ->Edit Tab -> Check- Allow Cell Drag and Drop.

  • All,

    Your suggestions have resolved my issue. I had to check Allow Cell Drag and Drop on the advanced tab options.

    Thanks for your help
