Print selected area or selected row RRS feed

  • Question

  • what options do i have to print selected row or area? EX. if i have many projects in my Master schedule and i only need to print one project schedule. Or if i filter my schedule by certain criteria and only need to print out some rows out of all filtered rows.

  • I think what you are looking for is a Print option that says "print only selected rows". AFAIK, that not in Project.

    What you can do is put a Flag field on the view, and check "Yes" the rows you want to print.  Then filter for those rows where flag fields is "Yes", printing then the filtered view.

  • Mimi,

    There is a very good KB article relating to the topic here at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/141654 (similar to Rob's logic). I would suggest you take a look at it. 

    How is your progress so far ?

  • I'm using Marked field to select rows that want to print. However, I know that in Project 2007, it has function under Report menu which I can print selected row to image file. However, I can't find this function under Project 2010. Can anyone tell if this function is still available in 2010?

  • 1 - select a text field (say text9) and name it MySum

    2 - Identify the tasks you want to select/show and enter a code into MySum - example, S for summary, C for Critical, Q for qualification, T for Test etc - whatever you deem necessary

    3 - create a filter titled MySum that asks for the code AND sets summary = no

           MySum     equals      "MySum Code?"?

    and Summary  equals    no

    when you run the filter, only the tasks coded will show

    example -- suppose you have 5 subprojects in your master project and you want to see tasks only from project XYZ and only selected tasks from XYZ

         code MySum with an appropriate code (say XYZ-S) and run the filter and you will get only those tasks

    then you can print or capture as a picture for pasting into a Power Point etc
