Resource ID (assignment field)

Data Type    Integer

Entry Type    Calculated

Description    The Resource ID field contains the identifier number that Project assigns to each resource. The Resource ID indicates the position of the resource in relation to other resources.

How Calculated    As you add resources, Project automatically assigns the next number in the sequence of resources as listed. This becomes the Resource ID.

Best Uses    The only view that the Resource ID field appears in is the Task Form. It also appears in the Assignment Mapping dialog box, which you can use when importing or exporting assignment dates.

Example    You want to export assignment dates to a Microsoft Excel workbook. You use the Save As command to export your assignments as an Excel workbook, following the instructions in the Export Wizard.

Remarks    To export the Resource ID field to another program, in the Save As dialog box select the name of the file format to which you are exporting (for example, Access Database or Excel Workbook). Then follow the instructions in the Export Wizard.
