Automate Distribution of Custom Fields To Other To Live Project Files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm using multiple projects in a Master Project configuration. We've been using some of the files for some time and I need to update some custom fields with new formulas and references.

    Where the files already have the custom fields they hold their own configurations, e.g. formulas.

    I want to programmatically open each file and update their custom fields to the new configuration.

    I know the location of all the files and have distribution scripts I use for updating calendars, working times, and so-on, using hyperlink addresses.

    When I try to apply the custom fields I find I can easily automate moving them to global, but I can't find away to get them out again without specifying the file name, e.g.

    OrganizerMoveItem Type:=9, FileName:="Global.MPT", ToFileName:="Test.mpp", Name:="Charge Code (Text20)"

    I've searched high and low for an answer. Am I missing something obvious?

    BTW I know all about Project Server and how that would solve the problem.

    Thanks for any help.
