Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You use Microsoft Project 2010 to connect to a team project that is hosted on a Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2008 server or on a TFS 2010 server.

  • A work item on the TFS server contains a user. The value Display Name field of the user contains a special character. For example, the value contains character "[."

  • You try to open the work item in Microsoft Project 2010.

In this scenario, the Resource Name field for this user is blank.

Cause

The issue occurs because of an error in the Team Explorer add-in for Microsoft Project. Specifically, the add-in does not have the logic to handle special characters (except for the comma) in display names.
