MS Project 2016 - not showing RAG status in reports

    Question

  • Hi,

    I've built a custom RAG field, however when I select this field in a NS Project Report, rather than showing the colours it shows the underlying letter i.e. R,A, G etc and not the colour red, amber and green. My custom field looks fine and works as expected in the views but not in project's report.

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    this is because the custom field has been set display graphical indicators similar to the screen shot below - there is no equivalent feature in the reports, they will only display the underlying text value.
