    Manipulating Bars in Gantt Chart (2003-SP2)

    Is there a way to force milestones to always be at the "front" of a rollup so they don't get hidden behind long-bar tasks in a high-level overview Gantt chart (rolled up to summary levels)? In Powerpoint, I'd select the object & choose "bring to front". In MSP, I can do this with objects that I draw in the Gantt chart, but not with objects that MSP populates in the chart - or at least it's not obvious how to do it! Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Michelle

    Never mind <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15> ! I am using flags to style the bars for particular types of tasks (i.e., development bar is blue, ready for test milestone is red, test bar is green, delivery milestone is purple, etc.), and the milestones were getting lost behind the development & test bars. I found that if I moved the bar style for those milestones lower on the listing of bar styles than the styles for the long bars that the milestones popped forward. So if you are setting up bar styles & want to make sure your milestones show up (or to make sure that shorter tasks show up in front of longer ones in a rollup), make sure to order the styles accordingly. They seem to be applied top in back and working forward until the last style in the list is applied to the front...

    Thanks,
    Michelle
