    Hello Mohamed,

    the task with ID= 0 is the project summary task. It's not possible to edit this task. 
    It summarizes all tasks in the project (start/finish date, duration, costs,...).
    You can hide him in the "Option"-menu on PWA or "Format"-menu in Project Professional.

  • Hi Mohamed,

    the first task you are seeing, is the project summary task. It does contain more or less the project information like overall duration or total of work. It can't be edited at all, since it is calculated by all task of your project. However, if you are irritaded by, you can just hide on tab Options by unchecking "Project Summary Task".

    You find the same feature in client on tab "Format" in task views.
