Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • In Project 2007, in the Open dialog box, when you sort projects by using the Last Modified field, the sorting is incorrect.
  • In the Task Usage view, the ACWP field is not displayed correctly in the grid pane.
  • After you accept updates and periods on the My Tasks page, 0 hour actual work contours are added to dates after the last date that has actual work for some assignments. This causes actual work to redistribute across the period.
  • After you perform a recalculation, task names disappear if a certain grouping type exists in the project plan.
  • Baseline values are reset when you save an .eds file to the server.
  • In Project Web Access (PWA), you check in a project. Then, you open this project in Project 2007. However, this project displays a status of "Check-in pending."
  • Project 2007 returns unexpected leveling results when you level on a day-by-day basis in Project 2007.
  • A project file together with child project is not checked in when you click the Close button (the "X" at the top of the window) to exit Project 2007.
  • If the total value length of a field exceeds 255 characters, you cannot filter custom fields.
