I misused the term “template”. The client has in fact sent me a .mpp file that they call a “template”. I have followed suggestions from others like, deleting all resources and re-entering them. Once I re-enter the resources, back come the calendars. Since these are resource calendars, they do not show up when one uses the Organizer.
I have taught and used MS Project since 1998, and much to my surprise, in Project 2010 Professional, when I add a resource of any sort to the Resource Sheet in a new blank file, that resource’s name shows up on the list of Calendars in the Change Working Time list along with Standard, 24-hour and Night Shift. Of course, when one saves the file as a .mpt, there is no option to delete unwanted/unneeded calendars.
This is one of the most interesting/challenging little battles that I have had with Project in quite some time.
