Changing the column width of the "Task" column in Enterprise Global RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm using Project Server 2007. We are trying make few changing in the enterprise global. We would like to change the default column width of the "Name" column in Gantt chartt view (because the default view settings doesn't show the full task name and PMOs have to extend it manually). How to proceed with it? Thanks in advance!

  • Hi Nathik,

    The column width wont change if you make changes to the Enterprise global. But you can write a Macro to increase the width of the column at the Enterprise global level. So that whenever the PM opens the project, the macro would run and increase the Task name column.

    Mark my reply as an answer if you find it relevant.

  • Hi

    to which view (or exact:table) do you refer?

    Enterprise Global contains only "Enterprise Gantt Chart" and the table "Enterprise Entry". If you change the column width there, it will work.

    Same with new views/tables that you create.

    But the default view "Gantt Chanrt" with table "entry" does not come from Enterprise Global but from the local global.mpt

    Hope that helps

    Regards

    Christoph
