Project Prints without columns titles RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    When printing my project plan or saving it to PDF, the output is missing the columns titles - name, duration, start...

    Working with Project 2013 desktop.

    Any idea how to fix?

  • Hello, Are you exporting it or saving as PDF?

  • janit,

    Sounds like you may have some corruption in your file. Try saving as XML, then re-open the XML file in Project. Note, you will lose any custom formatting using this process.

    Hope this helps.

  • Saving as PDF.

    I checked it and doesn't happen on other file

  • Indeed looks like file is corrupted since it doesn't happen in other file, how ever when trying to open the XML file - Project stops working

  • janit,

    Are you sure Project stops working or does it simply hang up because it can't open the XML?

    Try this. Find your working Global file and move it to the trash. Then re-start Project, a new default Global will automatically be generated. Note, you will lose any custom views, tables, filters, etc. with this process. Now open the errant file. Does the print function work? If it does then something in your Global was corrupt. If it still doesn't print, then indeed the file is corrupt and you can pull your old Global out of the trash and re-instate it by overwriting the new default Global.

    There are a couple other methods for attempting to fix a corrupt file. Go to this link and try the other methods outlined in the Wiki article:

    If none of those work, then you may need to go back to a previous version of your file (before the print problem occurred) and start over at that point.
