Timescale issue in MS Project 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I still get the timescale issue where the different scales show different out of sync displays. For example when you show half years on the top tier then quarters on the 2nd tier and months on the 3rd.

    The half year scale only show H2 repeated across the screen,

    The quarter tier starts the new year in the middle of the above tier H2

    The 3rd quarter shows Dec as the start of the 4th quarter tier above.

    I understand that Microsoft came out with a hot fix in April of 20012 for time scale issues. How do I check to see if this patch has been installed and does it fix this error?

  • cliquidoxygen,

    More importantly you should have SP2 for Project 2010 installed. It picks up all cumulative updates through June 2013. In addition, I suggest you also install the June 2013 cumulative update as it was released after SP2. You can get the SP2 update at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2687521. The June 2013 update is at: http://support2.microsoft.com/hotfix/KBHotfix.aspx?kbnum=2817385&kbln=en-us.

    However, it sounds like the issue have may be related to your fiscal year setting. Make sure you fiscal year setting is correct for your scenario. Take a look at Julie Sheet's wiki on the subject: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/28633.project-fiscal-year-display-in-views.aspx

    Hope this helps.

  • You should have Service Pack 2 installed to Project 2010.  That SP would include all cumulative updates released through April 2013.

    I cannot reproduce what you report.

    Are you using Fiscal year settings?  If so see the following TechNet Wiki article:
