Entry Type    Calculated

Description    The Resource Phonetics field is used only in the Japanese version of Microsoft Office Project. It contains phonetic information in either Hiragana or Katakana for the names of resources assigned to a task.

How Calculated    When you enter a resource name as associated with a task, Project enters an undetermined character string from the Input Method Editor (IME) into the Resource Phonetics field. You can also enter phonetic information yourself. The content of the Resource Phonetics field for tasks is similar to the Phonetics field for resources. However, the Resource Phonetics field can be used for multiple resources.

Best Uses    Add the Resource Phonetics field to a task sheet when you want to display or filter phonetic information for resource names. You can use the Resource Phonetics field to provide for proper sorting and pronunciation.
