Custom Date format in MS Project 2013 on Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We've gone past the Gregorian calendar and we're only working with Weeks in the format 1533-5 for today (yyww-d (day of week)).

    Before I could almost get it like that, ww-d, but now I can't find a way to view my project like that! 

    Is there a way of customizing the date format?

  • Hi,

    Are you talking about the start/finish columns? In case you are, you can go to file menu/options, general and select the following date format: d/ww

    Hope this helps,

  • Thanks!

    Yes and I know. But it's not good enough I need yyww-d. We're running projects over more than 1 year and it's strange if you can't do that in the application. It's easily customized in Access (which MS Project is using as a DB) and Excel.

  • You can use the Format function in a custom text field formula to display the dates in any format that you want. You can do this in the columns but you are limited to the display formats available in MS Project for the timescale.

  • MS Project is not using MS Access as a DB.
