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.

Out of curiosity, are you looking at current job bars and date columns or are you looking at target bars and target date columns? At times when we inherit a schedule prepared by others we do not know about some "hidden" settings that might misled us.

Make sure you have a Backup of the file it might be difficult to unschedule the job latter on.

You're definitely doing F9 and not CTRL+ F9? check to make sure your CTRL key is not stuck

 

After you schedule, do the activities that are not moving have actual dates or forecast (ie is there an "A" in the dates)?

GT,

Go to schedule icon not the F9 key and then press options > Advance > Uncheck Allow scheduling and levelling of individual projects.

Then on the Project Group Scheduling  Check Replace Project Data dates when scheduling

 

Hope this helps,

 

Cheers,

 

Vond
