How do I add a % complete column to my ms project?

How do I add a % complete column to my ms project?

How do I add a % complete column to my ms project?

I do know how to add a column and hide a column in MS project.

I want to know how to add the % Complete feature to the column. I have seen it on other mpp files but cant seem to duplicate it.

I want to be able to select the %complete with a pull down menu with in each cell in the column. Much like the pull down menu for dates.

RE: How do I add a % complete column to my ms project?

You just insert a new column and select % Complete as Field Name.  You don't get a drop down, but you do get and incr/decr that moves in 5% increments.

RE: How do I add a % complete column to my ms project?

I'm not sure the previous post answered your question.

I'm not sure I will be meeting your needs either, but...

Click on >View, >Toolbars, >Tracking

You now have the ability to click on a task and then quickly update the % Complete using this toolbar.

Hope this works!!  (can't say I have seen the feature of a % Complete dropdown similar to the Start or Finish date)
