Lookup Custom Field when selected in Task Sheet doesn't Persist in MS Project 2013 Pro RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've created a custom text field with a lookup list (ex. 123456.01) in the Task Sheet view. I inserted the field into a completely populated project WBS, but when I select from the drop-down list, the value doesn't return to the view; what's wrong. It seems like this works in some projects, but not in others. What do you suggest?

  • jfwPM,

    I suggest a little more clarity on exactly what you are doing. I understand you created a custom text field value list, that's pretty clear. But what do you mean by selecting from the list and not "returning to the view"? Also, what does the value list have to do with the WBS? Please clarify what you mean, then we can better help you.

    And just for reference, is your version of Project 2013 fully updated with the December 2016 update? If not, run Windows Update.
