Daryl and Graham, I’m going to give your workarounds a try!
Larry, I hear what you mean about Project not possibly being the right program. Problem is that my client is forcing a lot of schedule changes and last minute changes on a project with 500+ locations to visit. I was managing it in Excel but that is a lot of work to update every successive task when something changes. Was hoping that Project could help with that, though I know that the ongoing changes to sequence are going to be A LOT of work to keep up to date in project.
