    I realise this is old hat but my client is using Project 2003.  We have a data corruption that is resulting in remaining work displaying as -1,666,666,666,67 days!  Not surprisingly Project reports this as an error unfortunately it is also important that I maintain the Task Unique ID’s so I cannot just rebuild the plans – export to XML does not appear to work (because it maintains the corruption).  Whilst not massive this is impacting 3 linked plans totalling about 2500 lines.

    Is anyone aware of a solution to this issue?

     

    Many thanks

    Well I’ve kind of answered my own question.  Here is a solution, but it wasnt ideal:-

    Remove all work from plan that showed errors

    remove the inserted plans

    Save as XML

    Edit XML file to set silly work/remaining work values to zero

    create project from XML

    recover views/fields/tables etc.

    re-insert plans

    check the external links

    re-cover work
