This article describes update 4011640 for Microsoft Project 2013 that was released on January 2, 2018. This update has a prerequisite.

Be aware that the update in the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2013. It doesn't apply to the Office 2013 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?)

Improvements and fixes

This update fixes the following issues:

  • When you operate on a project in Project 2013, you receive the following error message:

    This operation cannot be completed because the source file contains invalid project data or the total number of rows would exceed the limit of 1,048,000 rows in a project. Validate the data in the source file, insert fewer rows, delete some rows, or consider dividing your project into subprojects to provide more space for tasks and resources.

    This issue occurs if the assignment maximum unique ID of 1048576 is exceeded.

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You are using the German version of Project 2013.

    • In Project 2013, you set the date format to use Weeks. For example, “3/W05".

    • You create an automatically scheduled task.

    • Then you modify either the Start or Finish field to change the date and save.

    In this scenario, you receive the following error message:

    The date you entered isn't supported for this field. Dates must be between January 1, 1984, through December 31, 2149.

    Enter the date in the correct format, eg., 15/06/00 or 15 June 2000
