Custom Table/View

Posted on 2007-10-01

Within Project, you can create a custom Table/View (View > Table > More Tables) that can be based on Screen: Task Sheet.  I've gone in and created a new table, called '3-my view' and selected appropriate tables and then created new view based on that table.  However, when I switch from '3-my view' to Gantt Chart, the columns I wanted to show still appear.  If I hide them in Gantt Chart, they do not appear when changing views.  What am I doing wrong?

    most likely this is Permissions issue, you didn't grant permission to see this view to the user..

    In MS Project each view is made up individual components, such as tables, filters, groups, and details.
    You need to create a table with the fileds you need and save it. After creating the table creae a view using this new table.
