3 problems with MS PROJECT

3 problems with MS PROJECT

3 problems with MS PROJECT


I'm beginner scheduler in MS PROJECT and I've 3 problems:

1) milestone
when I filled "resorce name" i can't put 100 % in fild "% work complete".
how to resolve it? (when fild resource name is blank it's OK with 100 %)

When I put 100 %  in fild "% work complete" (after resolved earler problem) I would like to milestone become automatically SOLID   (0 % blank)

2) I'd like to add column with FINISH DATE previous task - who to do it?
  I level resources manually and it will make it easier for me.

3) how to properly link task 37 with task 36 and 35 ?.
  I can do task 37 when task 35 will be finished and delivery from task 36
will be completed.

Please help me.
I send my example project on server. It can be downloaded from  [url=http://wyslijto.pl/plik/2d1w2f7gr5]example.rar[/url]

i have more than 4thousends line in my project. My aim job is level 9 resources. Is it possible to level it automatically (ms project will leveling it).
now I level data manually. I know about option level resources but it doesen't work.

Thanks in advanse

RE: 3 problems with MS PROJECT


You have not got any response to your inquiry about scheduling of about 4,000 tasks with automatic resource leveling in MS Project. It is not easy to manually perform resource leveling for such a large project whenever the schedule is to be updated. There may not be dependable, automated resource leveling functionality in MS Project, which costs less than $1,000. However, there are a few best-of-breed scheduling tools (based on advanced scheduling logic) which can schedule tens of thousands of tasks (of a single project or multiple projects) with automated resource leveling within a few minutes but are slightly more expensive than Project. They save you a lot of time by not demanding drag-and-drop operations on Gantt chart and time-consuming resource leveling exercises. Some of them are ideal for project-based production systems.
