Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create two tasks in Microsoft Office Project 2007.
    • You create a Macro that contains a call to the TaskDependencies.Add(From, Type, Lag) method.
    • You pass an integer value as the Lag parameter of the method.
    • You run the Macro.
    In this scenario, the Predecessors column shows wrong lag for the tasks.
  • Office Project 2007 crashes when you set a baseline on a master project.

  • In Office Project 2007, a rolled up Baseline Start field does not show the earliest baseline start date of the grouped tasks. Instead, it shows the latest baseline start date of the tasks.
  • You change the value in an enterprise or local custom flag field of a project in Office Project 2007. Then, you save and close the project. In this situation, the enterprise custom flag field does not show the changed value when you reopen the project. 
  • Assume that youuse Project Web Access to apply status updates to a task. When you open the task in Office Project 2007, the updates for the actual work are lost.
  • In Office Project 2007, you create a visual report for a master project that contains many subprojects. The subprojects share common resources with the master project. However, the visual report may contain values that are double the actual values.
  • In Office Project 2007,assume that both the Split in-progress schedule option is not selected and the Updating task status updates resource status calculation option is not selected. In this situation, an unexpected task split appears in a task, and the task’s start or finish dates may be incorrect.  

    Note The duration of the task is not affected.
