    I am trying to take value from a Task Text field and put the same value in an Assignment Text field. The Task Text field could be any of the custom Text fields, so I use the FieldNameToFieldFunction and the GetField method to get the value from the chosen Task Text field. The Assignment could also be for any selected Text field; however, there is no SetField method for Assignments. Is there another way for me to access the correct Assignment Text field? Thank you in advance!

    I’m not sure if you are using Project Server or just Microsoft Project but here’s a thought. There is an option in the task custom field for calculating assignments with a roll down option. This is supposed to do what I think you are trying to do. Hope that helps.

    I’m using Microsoft Project Standard. I can’t do the roll down because the Task Text field might be different from the Assignment Text field. I’m trying to find an “elegant” way of doing this without having to resort to doing a Select Case statement based on the Assignment Text field. But, it seems I might have to go down that path since there isn’t a “SetField” method for Assignments.
