      Hi !
      By default “publish” field is “Yes” in Ms-Project 2007. So when i create a new task, the “Publih” field show “Yes”. It is possible to change the default for “No”.
      Thank you and advance for your help!

      Yes you can. if you set this field to NO then that task will not show up on the assigned resources MY TASK assignment view in PWA.

      Hi Richard,

      Thank you for your time. But what i rely want to do is to set that field by default on the system.

      So when a project manager creates a new task, the field “Publish” is automatically to “No”.

      Now when i create a new task the field is set to "Yes" automatically. I can put to "NO" like you said. But i don’t want that, i want automatically to “No”.

      Hi Richard:
      I don’t think you can change the value the by default to “NO” instead of “Yes”.  If you don’t want the task to be published, then just simply save the project to the server without publishing it.
      Here at QC, we created a special “Publish Info” view for our PMs which lists all the tasks in a plan with the "Publish" column exposed.  Our PMs were trained to select the task(s) which they don’t want to publish to “NO” manually.  So far, it works well since they rarely don’t just publish a plan while there are specific tasks which they don’t want to be published.
      Best, Joseph
