    Re: naming conventions (project 98+)

    Afraid I can't help you directly in your quest, having so far avoided VBA with MSP. I assume you've trawled the VBA, Excel, etc forums for anything that you could adapt or build on? I will keep an eye on this in case anything useful surfaces.

    Main reason for this reply: Thank you for the link to Reddick! My personal (undocumented) coding conventions have evolved over the years and in principle seem to match his, although minor detail like prefixes obviously differ. (Not sure about the section on comments tho' - takes half the challenge out of debugging!

    Coding standards, conventions, efficiency, and elegance have been an interest ever since I created the NEAT/3 coding standards for NCR Century systems in Oz. And that was far too many moons ago, back in the dim distant past when minimising executable size was almost as critical as having it work.
    As distinct from the modern objective of the glitziest possible user interface with a gazillion functions, regardless of size or actual functionality <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    >Afraid I can't help you directly in your quest,
    But you already did, and Thanks.
    Sometimes confirmation that there is nothing much out there is good.
    I found a couple of "Reddick-Access" sites, which led me to believe that Reddick-Project sites would be less common.
    I am of the opinion that any standard is better than no standard (even a home-grown standard), but that using an existing standard is better than inventing one's own, hence my initial search for Reddick-Project, especially prefixes (they are the first things we see - hah hah!)


    >NCR Century systems
    NCR/Oz was popular about 30 years ago? I worked on an 8200/IMOS machine back then.

    naming conventions (project 98+)

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by chrisgreaves on 25-Jun-08 04:54. Edited instead of replying. Ooops!)</P>I've had no luck locating any naming conventions for obecjts in Microsoft Project.
    I'd appreciate pointers to existing conventions, or failing that, a top-level view of suitable prefixes for naming data items in Microsoft Project VBA.
    I've been trying to follow Reddick for years.

    Re: naming conventions (project 98+)

    In the apparent vacumn, I've instituted my own standards.
    I'd be happy to abandon them if a better set comes up.
    The attached document holds suggestions for prefixes for the objects in project98 that are probably non-existent in other Office applications.
    I'm not setting standards for existing terminology such as "Calendar", "Years", 'Months" etc.
