Problems with Reports in MS Project RRS feed

  • Question

  • <p>I am having a number of problems with the reports for the attached file - but Icannot see how to attach the files, or to post all the info in my question. None of the screen shots show in this post, so hopefully the words convey enough info. Can you explain these with a solution for each, especially the first one.</p><p>The file called <strong>Project Test Period 1 week 4</strong> has a September start date, and Oct 2 Status date and a current date of Oct 23.</p><p><span></span><span><p>The baseline was saved earlier. Then the work actual were added for some of the tasks.</p><p>The earned value table shows values that appear to be correct. </p><span><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin:0in 0in 10pt;"><span

  • Torotester,

    Sorry but the information you posted is not really useful - way too much data in an encoded form.

    First tell us what version of Project you are using and whether it is updated with the latest service pack. Then describe your issues succinctly. If you believe a screenshot will help you should be able to insert up to two images using the Insert Image icon at the top of the entry box. If you are unable to do that, it may be because you are not yet "authorized" for full forum posting privileges. I'm not completely sure but I think there is a waiting period for those new to the forum. Another option is to set up your images on a webpage that you can reference in your post.

    With regard to Visual Reports, there have been multiple issues. Some have been resolved with updates but not all.

    John
