This article describes update KB3178650 for Microsoft Project 2013, which was released on March 7, 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:

  • The Visual Basic Applications ScreenUpdating property does not work as expected in Project 2013. Instead of freezing the screen content when the code runs, the screen continues to update. This produces screen flicker and causes the code to run slower.

  • In some cases, enterprise custom field data may be lost from a project after a status update has been applied, and the project is then opened in Project Professional 2013.

  • Assume that you open a project plan, and transfer local resource custom field lookup table values to an enterprise resource enterprise field. Then you save the project plan to a Project server. In this situation, some custom enterprise resource lookup table values may be lost.
