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.

Here in Brazil we are not using Suretrack any more. MSP is the most popular planning and control software because it is easier to find professionals with expetise in this software, price, many good curses, books and consulting.

The usage of Primavera 5.0 is increasing quikly.

Donovan,

Logically no difference at all. It’s only the environment and some enhancement tool on the software.

Other issues are:
MSP98 can save or export to MPX, MSP2003 is not.
MSP98 calculate relationship base on predecessor, MSP2003 use successor

Thank you. For the link.

Question, is there a big difference between MS project 2003 and 98, and Suretrak Project Manager 2, and version 3.0a?
