This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft Project 2010 hotfix package that is dated April 9, 2013.
Issues that this hotfix package fixes
- When the custom field values of a sub-project are rolled up to a master project, you may see an #ERROR. However, you can see the correct values when you expand the sub-project within the master project and then calculate the master project.
- When you try to create a site for a project and set up the site as a sub-site of another project in Project 2010, you find that the projects are not listed alphabetically in the Select a project drop-down list.
- When you open a project that has cross-project links in Project 2010, the scheduling engine may incorrectly detect a circular reference in the project. You may also see more than one external task in another project that is linked to the same task.
- When you print or print preview a project in Project 2010, the inside text of the project in the Gantt bar is not truncated on the right-side of the bar as expected. Instead, the text extends beyond and overwrites the text on the right-side of the Gantt bar.
- Assume that you set the Schedule from value to Project Finish Date in the Project Information dialog box for a project in Project 2010. You click the Update Project button to set a Reschedule uncompleted work to start after date for the project. In this scenario, some scheduled work is unexpectedly deleted.
- Assume that you create a project in the English version of Project 2010 and you open the project in the French version of Project 2010. In some cases, the schedule of the project unexpectedly changes.
- Assume that you use the Save for Sharing feature in Project Server 2010 and you have the saved for sharing project open. When you change the value of an enterprise custom field and save the project, the change is not saved and the custom field reverts to the original value.
- When you view the allocation of resource in resource usage view, for example, the view may display the resource as overallocated even though no overallocation exists. To resolve the problem, you have to update the summary resources assignment (SRA) data.
