This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft Project 2010 hotfix package that is dated February 12, 2013.


Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • Assume that you apply hotfix 2687386 in Project Professional 2010, and then you apply a group definition to create a custom group. Then, you open a project that contains summary resource assignments (SRAs). When you expand the "Other projects and commitments" node in Resource Usage view, the SRAs are not displayed with the corresponding resource.

  • Assume that you apply hotfix 2687386 in Project Professional 2010. After you expand subtasks that correspond to project SRAs in Resource Usage view, you cannot collapse resource nodes.

  • When you open a project plan in Project Professional 2010, actual work is applied to an assignment in the plan. However, the owner of the assignment did not submit any actual work to the assignment.

  • Assume that you apply resource leveling to multiple projects, and the projects contain the same resource but have different booking types. In this situation, the "Level resources with the proposed booking type" option does not work as expected across multiple project plans.

  • Assume that you print a view or report, and you specify that the pages be stabled together. When you print multiple copies of the view or report, all the copies are stapled together as one unit.

  • Assume that a project contains a local resource whose name is the same as an enterprise resource. Additionally, the local resource is assigned to a task that is incomplete and a task this is 100 percent complete. When you save the project to a server, the local resource is assigned to the completed task, and the enterprise resource is assigned to the incomplete task.
