SUMMARY

This article describes the Microsoft Project 2010 issues that are fixed in the Project 2010 hotfix package that is dated June 28, 2011.

INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • A Microsoft Project 2010 report enables you to select and print a specific data range. For example, you can print all tasks, resources, assignments or all time scaled dates. When you try to print a specific data range in a report in Project 2010, the whole data range is printed.
  • Project Professional 2010 may crash or suddenly disappear without any crash error message when you save a project plan to a Project server.
  • You cannot receive correct values for the % Complete field, and the Cumulative % Complete field by using the VBA code in Project 2010.
  • Project 2010 may stop responding (hang) when you use the Team Planner view.
  • Assume that you use Project Web Application to apply status updates to a task. When you open the task in Project 2010, the updates for the actual work are lost.
  • After you import a project plan in Project 2010 from a format such as TXT, CSV or Excel, all new baselines (baseline 1 to baseline 10) are duplicated as the default baseline for all tasks.
  • When you clear the baseline in a view, such as the Task Usage view, certain assignment baseline cost values are not cleared.
  • When you open a Project 2003 plan in Project 2010, the task outline collapsed or expanded state displays incorrectly. Additionally, the percentage complete status of the summary tasks also displays incorrectly.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create a project plan that contains a task in Project 2010.
    • You configure a baseline for the project plan.
    • You click the Project Information command to change the project status date.
    • You change the date in the Reschedule uncompleted work to start after: list in the Update Project window.
    • You click the File tab, and then you select the Options option to change to a date format that does not include elements such as the year or the time.

    In this scenario, the Gantt bar for the task's baseline draws in an incorrect place.
  • Assume that you view a task in a new Window, and then you edit the task name on task name field in Project 2010. When you reproduce these two steps for many times, the data in the task disappears. Additionally, Project 2010 may stop responding.
  • You add actual cost values to a resource assignment in a project. Then, you open the project in Project 2010. In this situation, Project 2010 crashes.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You add a new task into a project in Project 2010.
    • You receive a prompt to save and check in the project when you close the project.
    • You click OK on the prompt dialog box to save and check in the project.
    • You immediately close the prompt dialog box before the project is checked in.
    • You click Yes when another prompt dialog box pops out to prompt to check in the project.

    In this scenario, the project is saved. However, it is not checked in.
  • You clear the Link to Project check box in the Insert Project dialog box when you try to insert tasks into a project in Project Professional 2010. Then, you open the project. In this situation, Project Professional 2010 crashes.
  • Assume that a SOAP error occurs in Project Professional 2010. When you view more information about the error in the error dialog box for a while, and then you click OK on the error dialog box, Project Professional 2010 crashes.
  • Assume that you type a Korean character as a task name in a project. When you want to change the task name to another Korean character that has the same initial consonant and middle consonant as the former Korean character, Project 2010 generates the final consonant as the former Korean character automatically. Additionally, you cannot change the final consonant.

    Note A Korean character consists of three components, initial consonant, middle consonant and final consonant in Korean language.
  • The ProjectBeforeTaskChange event does not trigger in Project 2010 when you click the Mark On Track button in the ribbon.
  • Certain actual work and orphaned pending updates are missing in Project Professional 2010 when you select the Save for Sharing option for a project file from a Project server.

    Note This issue occurs because the project file is saved locally with different GUIDs when you select the Save for Sharing option for the project file.
