Error with inactivating tasks with 0% complete RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I hope you are having a great day. I am experiencing an error message when I attempt to inactive some tasks that have 0% complete. Have you experienced this error before?

    I look forward to your thoughts.

     

    Regards,

    Jeffrey

  • Jeffrey,

    I'm guessing this is the same question you posted to the LinkedIn MPUG group.  As I noted there, if the task has an actual start date it cannot be inactivated even though the % complete is zero.

    Project will show the following error message.

    Delete the Actual Start date and you should be able to inactivate the task.

  • Jeffrey,

    Okay here are my first thoughts. What version of Project are you using? Is it updated with the latest service pack? You say this happens with "some tasks". Can you give us some examples so we can try to replicate what you are seeing?
