I’m using MS Project 2010 Professional. I’m not precisely sure what you mean by “creating the filters” and “recording your own macro”.
The filters I referred to originally just mean that the my mpp files are not always saved in an unfiltered state. For example, it might be saved with a filter for incomplete tasks or saved with a filter for tasks that start/finish by a certain date. Since I have to post the complete schedule (all tasks visible regardless of open or closed) to the intranet, I often have to unfilter everything before I do my “save-as PDF”.
The macro I referred to originally was part of one less-than-optimal solution I’d been thinking of. I’m sure there is a 3rd party macro software somewhere that would record me opening each of the 30 files, unfiltering, and saving. However, this seems expensive and cumbersome. Perhaps you had a built-in MS Project macro function in mind?
Just for clarification, here is what I have to do each week with my 30 projects.
Open Project #1 Remove all filters Save As PDF Close the project. Open Project #2 Repeat steps 2-4 a total of 29 times. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
