  • Hi Parth,

    Are you getting the message:
    "There is a view named &Gantt Chart in this project which cannot be overwritten. Press OK to rename it or press cancell to cancel opening the project"

    If yes, seems that you are modifying the Gantt chart view (adding/removing columns etc) using Macro. You may need to check out the Enterprise Global. Make sure that you are not currently in a view that you want to delete, or in a view that is using a table that you want to delete. Now, open into the Organizer. Next, click on the View tab. Make sure that "Checked-out Enterprise Global" is selected in the "Views Available In" drop-down on the right side of the dialog. Click the "Gantt Chart" view and click Delete. This will delete this extraneous view from the Enterprise Global.
