This article describes update 3213538 for Microsoft Project 2013 that was released on July 11, 2017. This update has a prerequisite.

Be aware that the update in the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2013. It doesn't apply to the Office 2013 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?)

Improvements and fixes

This update fixes the following issues:

  • After you import task, resource, and assignment information from an Excel worksheet in Project 2013, the work value is ignored.

  • If the task finish date is changed in the schedule web part, the actual work is spread unexpectedly.

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • Your system region setting uses a comma as the decimal separator.

    • In your project, you have a custom cost or number field defined.

    • You save your data to the XML format.

    • You give the XML file to an individual who opens it in the system where the decimal separator is a period.

    In this scenario, the decimal portion of a number is lost. For example, 45.32 turns into 45.

  • After you replace a local resource with an enterprise resource, the actual work is transferred to the enterprise resource even though it's a protected work.
