Update data from excel only partially working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have MSProject 2007.  We restructured our resources in the company and I need to update custom outline fields we created for our resources (i.e. we switched region designation, supervisors, etc.).  I exported the resource data to excel, changed the data, and tried to import the changed data back into MSPROJECT.  Custom Outline fields 1, 2, and 3 updated properly, but Custom Outline fields 4, 5, and 6 will not update.  All are text fields and no data field contains more than 14 characters.

    I have tried imports that just do one of the problem custom fields as well as multiple fields at once.  Any thoughts as to why some fields update and not others?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Never Mind, just figured out that some of the custom fields were set to not allow me to add data that was not in the lookup field for that field.  I changed the setting to allow additional items to be added to the fields.
