Kim; In addition to Larry’s comments above. If you are using Project Server, the Build Team window (I believe that’s what its called) where you add an enterprise resource to the project’s resource pool contains a replace function. Using this, you can have project automatically replace a generic resource such as IRT Planner with an enterprise resource name such as Joe Smith. In my example, Joe would be assigned to all tasks on which IRT Planner is assigned and the remaining work from IRT Planner would be automatically transferred to Joe. Not sure if you have server, but if you do, this may be an alternative.
