Show Physical % Complete on Your Task Bars

To illustrate how much of a task is done when you’re working with Microsoft Project, just insert a PHYSICAL % COMPLETE line to the Bar Styles dialog box as shown below. Note that Project doesn’t draw a PHYSICAL % COMPLETE bar if the Actual Start is NA.

  1. I have a similar question relating to bar styles, instead of the physical percent field, I am using a number field to obtain progress. How do I show that in the progress bar?
