Gantt Chart - Can't remove bar Information RRS feed

  • Question


    I have got a resource name that appears in my gantt chart task bar and I can't find how to remove it! I have looked through the format bar and bar styles and I cant find anywhere that shows a resource name would appear in the task bar.

    If anyone could help with a little advice I would be most grateful?

    Kind regards,

  • The problem has to do with the format and style of the bars.

    Go to format, bar styles, and run down the list till you find the bar style you are looking for. When you click on it you will see on the lower pane the shape and colour of the bar. You will also see a tab for text, and it is in there that determines what text is attached to the bar and where it is attached. It's easy to miss if you don't know it's there.

    Any help?

  • Thanks for the reply. I have checked in the Bar styles text list and the resource name doesn't appear. I can only make it disappear in two ways:

    1) Put the Task completion % to 0

    2) Delete the resource from the task.

    It's really weird because the same resource is used on multiple tasks throughout the project and this doesn't replicate.
