I'm using MSProject 98. I have project template that should be used by more than 40 engineers and one the text columns, text1, should receive "A" or "P" that is my task type.
In order to ease up the filling of project datas and enforce only one of these options, I would like to place a drop drow list in that column. It's possible? If yes, how do I do it?

Hi capaverde,
In Project 2000 you can accomplish your goal by:
1) Insert a column
2) Choose Field name...Text1 from the drop-down list
3) Right-click the column, then choose Customize Fields
4) Click Value List
5) Enter A and P in two successive rows under the Value column
6)Check the box for use a value from the list as default entry
7) Check the radio button for Restrict field to items from the value list
8) Click OK twice

Cheers!

Brad

Your tip works fine in Project 2000. Perhaps, the client I'm working on
have a lot of copies of Project 98 and he is not considering to
upgrade to 2000, at least in the short term.
Project 98 does not have the "Customize Fields" as a option to the column.
Any idea?
