Microsoft Project MPP Date Range Prompt RRS feed

  • Question

  •  am working with a Microsoft Project MPP File.  When I open the MPP file,  a prompt window will popup and it asks to select a date range.  the prompt window indicates:
    Date Range: "Show tasks that start or Finish after",  and then you have to choose a date .Then a second prompt will indicate: Date Range: "And Before" and you have to choose a second date. I am trying to get rid of this setting / date prompts when I work with this file
    I tried changing from automated scheduling to manual scheduling and then saving the file again with a different name but it didn't work.   Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  • Ven 11,

    It appears the file has been saved with the default "Date range..." filter (or a similar custom filter) applied.  The next time you open the file, clear the filter before re-saving it.  The command is found in the Data group of the View ribbon/tab.

    Good luck, tom
