      This is incredibly stressful…..I set up a project with tasks and resources, dollars and durations. I am using Fized Units.
      Save, close and reopen the file and ALL rsources are changed to one of the resource names. Dollars and dates hold. It will not let me resest the resources because the one wrongly subsituted is a Work resource and the swapped ones are Cost resources.

      Debra, this could be hard to figure out. Is this happening with just one file? Is there someone else that can try those same steps to see if they get the same behavior? It sounds like could be a corruption somewhere.

      Hi Larry –

      You are correct – I believe it is a bug and it seems to be one associated with the resource sheet. I eventually recreated not just the project (just over 100 lines so not biggie), copied the resource sheet to it and same issue. I then recreated the file again AND recreated the resource sheet (about 30) and SO FAR – have not had any issues.

      Thank you for your response.
      Debra

      Sorry to hear that happened, but glad you found an answer. As much as MS Project is getting more and more stable, there still are instances of corruption at times.
