      Hi – newby on the group, relatively new to MS Project

      I’ve set up an Outline Code to allow values to be selected from a pick list. What I’d like to be able to do is select more than one, ie two values from a picklist for one activity

      Is there a generally recognised best way of doing this?

      Unfortunately, you can’t do it. Custom fields and outline codes, in general Project, doesn’t allow you to choose more than one value in the list.

      You can use multiple fields and make a selection in each one and then combine the data in another field. As an example, you’ve created a lookup in three Text columns (Text1, Text2, and Text3). A choice can be made in Text 1 only, in Text 1 and Text 2, or in Text 1, Text2, and Text3.

      Customize the field Text4 enter the formula:

      [Text1] & ” ” & [Text2] & ” ” & [Text3]
