Show differences (external predecessors) via report or project-field? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all!

    Scenario: I have a cross-project-dependency (=> dependency between two tasks in different projects). If the the predecessor is changed and I open the project (with Project Professional), wich includes the successor, then there will popup the window "Links between projects". Now I can see the information i need: the difference (or just the information that a predecessor is changed).

    Question: How can i get this information via a report or better a project-field (for the project center)? Do you know if there exists a helpful project-field, a database-view or a stored procedure?

    Target: A user don't need a Project Client (just the PWA) to see that an external predecessor (in his project) is changed.

    Thank you!

  • RTF.... ;-) (thanks SDK)

    The field I searched for: ProjectGhostTaskAreStale (included in the table "MSP_EpmProject_UserView").


    New Question: Why is the flag set to 0 although the ghost-task isn't  up to date??? The flag is set to 0 although the Project Client pops up the window "Links between projects"... The project which includes the predecessor isn't just saved it's also published after the change...

  • The flag "ProjectGhostTaskAreStale" don't seem to be usefull... :-/

    Is there any possibility to solve this by custom code? (How?)

    Thank you!!

  • Hi, 

    Inter dependent projects are not much supported in PWA. We are also facing same issues and apart from this, we are having unexpected issues in PWA where we have inter-dependent tasks. If you or anyone else found this please do share.


    Thanks, Kashif
