2007 and 2010 Excel input differences RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was importing tasks, resources, and assignments into fixed work tasks in MSP Standard 2007 successfully. When I upgraded to 2010 my results changed dramatically. The problem appears to be resulting from my assignments because msp is changing values on input. As part of my input for fixed work tasks I am entering "work" and "units". The units were calculated before input by dividing the work for each assignment by the duration * hours per day. Unfortunately MSP 2010 is changing the "work" amount as it sets the units to 100%. This makes little sense to me as this is a "fixed work" type task. It doesn't change all assignments on a task but solely the one assignment driving the duration. I had also entered a duration in the task table but msp overrides this.
