Hi Experts,
I need to give some users access to one MS Project 2003 file, that they may edit, I need to have it automatically highlight the changes done, or anything that indicates these changes!

How do i do that?

In Project 2007, you can enable change higlighting and then project will highlight other lines affected by the change you have just made in the project. (i.e. if you change the end of a task, and theat delays the start of other tasks, those items will be highlighted.)

This does not exist in 2003.

If you are looking for a way of tracking changes, this does not exist either, except some sort of manual method. I would probably export both versions to Excel and sort on Outline code and then write a  formula to compare key cells.

Bottom line: what you want to do will be difficult.

Hi James,
Does this highlight changes done by different users with different colors? so that i don't get confused and changes get mixed up!

I'm afraid that what you are looking for is not in any version of Project.

The change highlighting uses one color to highlight affected fields, not just those directly changed. And it doesn't do any sort of Change Tracking.

Project does not really have very sophisticated multi-user features for sharing a single project. Most of the multi-user development has focused on Project Server which generally expects a single project to be assigned to a single Project Manager.
