project server 2010: what is the TASK_EXT_TASK_UID field in the MSP_TASKS table RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need to understand the meaning and significance of the TASK_EXT_TASK_UID field in the MSP_TASKS table. There is no explanation of this field in the SDK and my first guess was that this field resembles the GUID of the task in the subproject if the task is a subproject task in a parent project. However, after checking the subproject, I discovered that the GUID in this field is not a GUID for any task in the subproject. Any help much appreciated.

  • Hi Geo,

    TASK_EXT_TASK_UID specifies cross project tasks links.

    Below is very good explanation on cross project tasks links

    Hope this helps you.
