April 5, 2016, update for Project 2013 (KB3114954)

This article describes update KB3114954 for Microsoft Project 2013, which was released on April 5, 2016. 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
Fixes the following issues:
  • Assume that you open a project that shares resources from a common resource pool, and when you are prompted, you click to open the resource pool. When you change the assignments in the sharing project, the changes are not reflected in the resource pool project.
  • When a resource is overallocated by a combination of actual work and remaining work, the work doesn't appear in red (overallocated) in that period when it's leveled on a day-by-day basis.
  • You can't create a project from a SharePoint task list if the list has data validation rules set.
  • Microsoft Project doesn't always calculate the finish dates of some tasks. This causes them to finish later than expected. This can occur in a scheduled from finish project where implied dependencies from a summary task to the sub tasks aren't always respected.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You have an enterprise resource that's assigned to a project.
    • You change the booking type for the resource.
    • You save and then open the project again.
    In this situation, the booking type property isn't saved.
  • Consider this scenario:
    • You have an enterprise resource custom field.
    • The field has a lookup table applied to it, and multiple values can be selected.
    • You have a resource that has a value in the field that's longer than 255 characters.
    • You open a project in Project Professional that uses this resource.
    In this situation, you receive the following error message:
    The value you entered does not exist in the lookup table of this code. All values must be predefined in the code lookup table. Contact your server administrator to get new values added.
    You also find that the list of values in the field is truncated or has disappeared completely.This issue occurs after you install December 8, 2015, update for Project 2013 (KB3114366).
  • When you select multiple tasks and try to replace a resource, the replace action doesn't work if the initial resource that you are replacing isn't assigned to all the selected tasks.
  • The Visual Basic Application (VBA) OpenXML method fails with the following error message:
    Run-time error '1101'
    Application-defined or object-defined error.
    This issue occurs after you install September 8, 2015, update for Project 2013 (KB3085510).
  • When you open a master project that has cross project links, Project 2013 may crash.
