Microsoft Project 2013 - Pasted tasks are not linked correctly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello -

    I am copying tasks (selecting whole row), and when I paste them, they are not linked correctly.  I am seeing the same issue whether I paste them within a project file or into a new file (same table).  Same issue whether I paste in between existing task rows or at the bottom of the file. 

    As expected, any linkages that to/from tasks outside the selection do not paste.  However, tasks linked to other tasks within the selection do not link correctly, UNLESS the link is to the task immediately above.  I do get this error message:

    I am experiencing this on a test file - no summary tasks, no lead/lag, all FS relationships.

    I am running Microsoft Project 2013 Professional (15.0.4911.1000) MSO (15.0.4911.1000) 64-bit.

    Any ideas?

  • krcullen,

    First of all, copy and paste isn't the best way to re-arrange a project file. Drag and drop is a better approach.

    More specifically, what exactly do you mean by, "...are not linked correctly"? An example or screen shot would help.

    Also, please explain what you mean by "pasting into a new file (same table)".

    It could be that will all the copying and pasting, the file has become corrupt. Does the issue still occur on a new fresh file?
