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.

Morning all,

I have a project with external links to a suppliers project.  well I have two to be honest.

On one of them if they change the project number I lose the links and on the other I do not.

My settings are all the same and I can't see any difference in theirs either.

Has anyone any ideas why one would lose them and the other would not?

Thanks in advance,

Thom

Normally I'd agree but I just cannot understand why it does on one and not on another.  The second one the supplier updates the project number each month following an update yet my links stay the same.  The other is the same supplier and does the same but it loses them and has to be re-established each month.

 

I wondered if there were a setting that stops it being lost or whether setting a status on the project would do it as one is active and one inactive.
