I really need some advice. I have a ribbon bar that I am unable to place a text in to the right as there is a completion percent at the end of the ribbon bar.
Can you please advise how to delete the % amount at the end of the bar. When I go into format bar it shows nothing ?
Hi Rosie, are u talking about the column % complete? Right mouse the column, and select Hide. U don’t really ever delete any of those columns, but you can hide and add new ones… hundreds of new ones if you need 🙂 Best,
Thanks for your reply, It is on the gantt chart task bar ( when I format the bar there is no text) but it shows up and the end, even if I please 0% completed it will show up 0%at the end of the bar? It is driving me insane as I would like to place the resources names at the end of the bar.
I am talking about the ribbon or task ribbon on you sample you have a blue line with the resource me to the right. I cannot place anything in this text bar as the percentage is already there? Weather its part of the master I don’t know. Can you please let me know how to get rid of it so I may place recourse name like yours. ( resource name me)
Hi Rosie! I see what u need now: see here.. Double clicking inside the bar itself brings up the format options, and u can put whatever fields u like on the top, bottom, left, right, etc. of the bar u want. In the sample above, the % complete is on the left of the bar, and the resource name is on the right. You can arrange however u like. Good luck!
Thanks for this info. What if there is nothing in the text bar but I cannot get rid of the % completed is it a default? When I put anything in the text options it just writes over the top and I cannot read either?
Hi Rosie, I think u need to understand what the interface in the last screen shot is doing. It’s replacing the display with the contents of the field(s) specified – up to 5, one in the top slot, bottom, left, right and inside. Most stock fields are formulas, so changing what is output and placed in those slots is non-trivial. So, in summary, are we up to speed here?
For ur problem of overwriting, try deleting and re-adding the field(s) you want to display. If this is still happening, and the scale of the timeline is wide enough to display the text, then there might be a bug in your version of MSP. Make sure all the patches have been applied to your version. Best,
