I have a remote user who is having issues with event to successor timeline automatic update. He is using Microsoft Project 2007 Professional on Windows XP SP3. The project file has been working fine until several weeks ago when this problem suddently started to happen.
Here's the problem:
When he goes into the “duration” cell and changes the duration of an event from let’s say, 5 weeks to 10 weeks, the “finish” date changes, as it should. So, that’s working. The problem is that the other cells / ”successors” that are connected to this particular event do not automatically change. However, when he goes into that other “successor” event and physically touch the calendar date, it then refreshes. However, he has to do that for each and every event that’s connected not only to the original event that he changed the dates for, but for every other “successor” that’s connected in any way.
Does anybody have an idea on why this started happening all of sudden and how he can revert back to it automatically updating to all the successors?
