When you edit a custom field through PWA for a project plan
that has in-progress tasks, and then you reopen the project in Project 2007,
the duration and percentage complete for these tasks are unexpectedly
After you accept updates for assignments, Project 2007
shows different contours for actual work and for actual overtime work.
If you save and publish the project, the resource's timesheet on the My Tasks
page shows the same incorrect contours.
By default, the booking type for all resources is
Proposed. This may cause issues. For example, assume that the
resource booking type is set to Proposed for the enterprise
resource. However, in the project, the same resource’s booking type is set to
Committed. After you change the details about the resource and
then publish the project plan, the booking type in the project changes back to
Proposed. Therefore, resource pending updates for that project
are lost. Additionally, resources cannot see their work on the My Tasks
Milestone becomes 100-percent completed if one of the
following conditions is true:
You use the QueueUpdateProject Project Server Interface (PSI) method two times to update the
task constraint date.
An update is made to a predecessor task.
On the approvals page, the timephased view starts at the
beginning of the affected tasks instead of the date range where the new updates
are at. For example, assume that you have a task that begins January 1 and ends
December 31. Also assume that it is now May, and when you visit the updates
page, you see the timescale starting in January instead of in May. This means
that you have to scroll to the new May updates.
On the My Tasks page in Project Web Access (PWA), you
perform grouping on one or two fields. In the list of tasks or assignments, if
the leaf on which the grouping is performed is clicked, no tasks or assignments
are displayed. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
The indicated project is not available in Project
After you accept updates and periods on the My Tasks page,
an actual work contour of 0 hours is added to dates after the last date that
has actual work for some assignments. This causes actual work to redistribute
When you set the site regional settings as Swedish,
Norwegian, or Finnish in PWA, the sorting order in the Select Task –
Webpage Dialog box is incorrect
if one or more of the Å, Ä, or Ö characters is
included in a project name.
In this situation, the sorting order in
the Select Task – Webpage Dialog box starts by listing all the
projects first, followed by all tasks.
When you visit the Assignment Details page directly from
the My Tasks view, the Gantt Chart is always set to use the date range of the
current date instead of the range that is set in My Tasks view.
On some assignments, when a task update that has actual
work hours is submitted from PWA and accepted by the project manager,
additional hours of actual work are incorrectly added to that
On the My Tasks page in PWA, if the data is displayed as
being timephased, and any grouping is applied, you may receive the following
error message when you try to print the view:
"TaskPart" Web Part appears to be causing a problem. Object reference not set
to an instance of an object. Web Parts Maintenance Page: If you have
permission, you can use this page to temporarily close Web Parts or remove
personal settings. For more information, contact your site

If an enterprise resource task assignment has 0 hours of
work associated with it, the values that you see for the summary resource
assignments under the Other Projects and
Commitments in the Resource Usage view may not
When you search specific Korean characters on the Edit
Project Properties page, you may receive the following error message:
This project is currently checked out. No edits can be
made to it while it is checked out.
Note This issue does not occur on the Manage User page when you search
the same characters. The same issue also occurs in an English-language
environment if you search some Chinese characters.
On the My Tasks page, you enter time on the Gantt Chart for
a multiple-week task. However, after you click Save All, some
time may not be saved.
When you delete a timesheet line in PWA and then add
another line, the added line is empty. Additionally, you receive the following
While communicating with the project server
an error occurred. Check connectivity with your administrator to determine if
further action is necessary.
The Resource Assignment page returns no data when the
filter that is applied is based on an enterprise custom field.
When you delete resources in PWA or through the PSI, the
deletion fails, but no error is returned to tell you why the deletion
