Free Format Duration VBA Macro for Project 2010 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi all,

    Project 2010 no longer has Microsoft's VBA macro to format durations. There have been a number of requests for the same functionality in Project 2010 here in this forum and elsewhere, so I've written a replacement macro. In fact I couldn't resist improving it so this macro formats either all tasks in the active project or all selected tasks in the active project.

    To download a copy, visit http://www.projectvbabook.com and click the Sample VBA Code button.

    This is a freebie, so all care but no responsibility.

    Enjoy!

  • Rod,

    I am looking for a way to get at the following Project Server 2010 fields: Constraint Type, Unique ID Predecessors, Unique ID Successors. I can download most everything from the Reporting database but those three fields in particular do not exist in the database schema. Ergo, I cannot extract them. Are they somehow generated by Project Professional once the schedule is opened?

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Jan,

    Based on your reply, I can only conclude that what I want to do is not possible. Is there a way for me to calculate that data using the same algorithm that Microsoft uses?

    Thanks, Garrett

  • Hi,

    Isn't it much smpler to open the file and read them in VBA from Project Professional? Your allergy to Professional must be quiet strong if you prefer to recode part of its scheduling engine :-)

  • Jan,

    I am actually looking to extract these data items from Project Server 2010.

    Thanks, Garrett

  • Hi arrett,

    You replied yourself, I quote:

     those three fields in particular do not exist in the database schema. Ergo, I cannot extract them. Are they somehow generated by Project Professional once the schedule is opened?

    And my reply to that is yes. No need to calculate them, they are there in Professional but not in Server.

    Greetings,

  • Hi -  I suspect this code would be very useful for me in my current application.  However, the link does not work.

    Can you post this code?

    Thank you!
