This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft Project 2010 hotfix package that is dated October 8, 2013.


Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • Assume that a lookup table contains many entries. When you run the CustomFieldValueListAdd Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) method to add the entries to a project in Project 2010, it takes longer than expected.

  • Assume that you use the Gantt Chart view to view some pages in Project 2010. When you print the pages, the "Fit to" settings in the Page Setup dialog box are not applied correctly. For example, Gantt bars and text are not printed.

  • Assume that you create a task that contains three or more assignments in Project 2010. Then, you sequentially enter some actual work for the assignments in the Task Usage view. In this situation, the actual work for other assignments that the task contains may be displayed for the wrong day.

  • After you group some assignments in the Task Usage view or Resource Usage view in Project 2010, some tasks or resources may be displayed in the wrong group.

  • When you assign a budget cost resource to the Project Summary task in Project 2010, the "% Work Complete" value for the Project Summary task is calculated incorrectly.
