Bulk Edit - Filter for Lookup fields RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have installed Bulk Edit Tool in MS Project Server 2010 environment. I am able to filter and edit projects using the Tool.

    However, filter for lookup fields doesn't work in Bulk Edit. The filter fields page is not displayed. On further debugging, an exception viz. "Unable to cast the data type" is displayed, while the filter field is rendered.

    I am looking for a solution to this issue. Any help in this regard will be appreciated.

  • Hey there Abhijit,

    If you are using the Bulk Edit Solution Starter for 2010 - unfortunately there is a reason why it is called a "Solution Starter" - because its far from a finished solution.

    The most reliable way I have found to bulk edit custom fields in 2010 is via PowerShell.  There are lots of examples out there.

    Cheers,

       James.
