Different text effects in Gantt chart bar text thru VBA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there anyway to apply two different effects to different parts of the text in one position in a Gantt chart (e.g. text to the right of task bars)?

    For example, I have a custom field that combines the tasks name with it's start-finish date range, e.g.  Task 1  Mar. 23 - Mar. 24

    It would be nice to be able to format that custom field text on the Gantt chart to show up like this:  Task 1  Mar. 23 - Mar 24

    Thru the interface I can obviously only apply one style to text in any given position on the Gantt chart, hence my wondering if I can control this thru VBA...

  • jjmclell,

    Although multiple text styles on a single line of text are possible in Excel, Project does not have capability. So, no, you cannot do what you want manually or by using VBA.

    Hope this helps.
