Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hey Paul,


I just picked up your book.....99 tips and tricks with MS Project 2007. Thanks a lot for helping people like me in getting a jump start with MS Projet scheduling.

I am about to start planning a Project involving working on Gas piping and Utility area rebuilding. My project manager want us to maintain a Risk register, to be reffered to and discussed during our review meetings . I was wondering if you could guide me as to where i could find more information on this. I am familiar with the P6 Risk Register.....but i am relativeley new to MS Project.Is there any excell sheet available that may can be used efficiently, or any options available with MS Project 2007. Thanks again.

Not quite as simple as that, this is MSP.

Retained logic when:
1. Splitting Inprogress tasks is checked in Options and
2. The percentage complete is greater than 0% when there is an actual start.

Otherwise Progress override.

I have just run a test myself and it appears to be Retained Logic...unless someone else knows better!
Are there any adjustable settings in MSP?
