I have not received any response to my question. If you are unable to answer it, let me know.


 


I need an expert on MS Project. If you can't help, refer me to someone else. If there is no one else availaible, let me know.

Microsoft Office Technician: comp_audio, Microsoft O365 Trained Support Engineer replied 5 years ago
I have found a couple sites that might help you find the solution your looking for. Please look through them and let me know if they have helped you.

If this is not the answer your looking for, please do not rate this as bad, just let me know and I will get with my Project guru at my office in the AM and get your answer you seek.

No. None of these links answers my question. To clarify, I am updating a schedule that shows both completed tasks, and other tasks at are less than 100% complete.


 


I want to do two things.


 


1) Show on only tasks that are less than 100% complete AND...


2) Highlight tasks that start at a date "less than or equal to" a time 3-weeks from now, say 11/27 for example.


 


The program appears to let me do #1 easily by selecting the incompleted tasks filter.


 


However when I apply the #2 condition to the filter, and then click "highlight" (not "apply") , the schedule comes out still showing the 100% complete items.


 


It appears the program will not let me filter AND highlight. Or is there another way around this?


 


I definately need the MS Project guru for this one.

I am sorry but he has been very busy. He is taking a look at it now. He said he will try and have an answer within a couple hours. He asked if there was a file I could give him, and I told him I do not have it. If you wanted to send me the file would be a big help, but it is not required if it has private information on it. Thanks

Hello, Sorry it has taken this long to get back to you. My guru said to try going to this site and have a look. He was able to do as you had wanted without any issues. He is thinking that maybe it might just be a setting or selection within MS Project. Here is the site.

I have found some other very useful sites that may be of help too. I do not know your level of expertise with Project and Gantt charts, but I thought I would share this useful informatin I found as well. I am not a pro with Project, but my guru showed these to me and I thought they were pretty useful. You may not find them as useful, but here they are in case.

Please, please refer me directly to your guru. I am an advanced MS Project user, extremely well versed in Gantt charts.


 


What yopu sent are generic tutorials that do not answer my question.


 


If you want me to send you one of my schedules I will. Just give me an email to send it to.


 


We are now into a week of going back and forth. I am very disappointed in your service so far.

Microsoft Office Technician: comp_audio, Microsoft O365 Trained Support Engineer replied 5 years ago
Hello, I am sorry, but I will OPT Out and let a MS Project expert take over. My guru will not do direct contact. I am sorry that I would not help you at this time.

Hi, I’m a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!
