SUMMARY

This article describes the Microsoft Project 2010 issues that are fixed in the Project 2010 hotfix package that is dated February 22, 2011.

INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • When you save a project plan in Microsoft Project 2010, and then you reopen this project plan, you experience one of the following symptoms:
    • Assignments are moved to other tasks.
    • Data is missing.
    • Data is moved around.
      
  • Consider the following scenario: 
    • You configure a Project Server 2010 server to operate in Backwards Compatibility mode. 
    • You have a project plan that contains cross-project dependencies.
    • You connect to the Project server by using Project Professional 2010, and then you open the project plan.
    • You try to save the project.
