Open any project from Project Server in client, warning message: "Invalid name fore a resource" RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using Project Server 2010. Resources are created manually, but they do not have special characters in their name. But every time someone opens a project file in the client version of Project, you receive the error "Invalid name for a resource".

    The names are in the format of "First Last" with no special characters or leading/trailing spaces. Multiple resources per task do have a comma separator, is that causing the issue? I tried to change my regional settings for Windows, didn't change the display though.

  • Hi,

      Are all enterprise resources or you have local resources to projects also?

      Check if some of the resources are not on AD any more that gives a similar message.

  • Hello,

    All of the resources should be coming from AD, but that is interesting if they are no longer in AD that it might cause this issue. I'm going to try some tests for that.
