    Task Name Column-Won't Word Wrap (2000)

    Hi,
    I created a custom table that just has columns. ID, %Complete, Task Name, Dur, Work, Start, Finish, Pred, Resources. To see all of these column on a landscape 8.5x11 sheet of paper, I have to make the Task Name column smaller and it cuts off some of the information. So I make the row height bigger. The problem is, on some tasks the text word wraps fine and prints correctly. But on other tasks it won't word wrap and when it prints it only prints the first part and will not word wrap the rest and I can't figure out why. I've made them all the same and it still won't work.

    Any help would be apprectied.

    Deb,

    When you say you created a custom table, do you really mean you created a custom gantt view? If using a custom gantt, try making the row heights larger before printing. Project should wrap the text after increasing the row heights. You could also try File, Page Setup, and reduce the adjust to percentage (i.e., 85% instead of 100) to shrink the page.

    HTH

    No, it's a custom table. No chart is present, just the sheet view and I have increased the row size and it still won't wrap. I have noticed this after some trial and error. If I just type in basic text, it wraps accordingly, once I bold the text it will not wrap so if I unbold it, it will not go back to wrapping. I actually have to delete the text and retype it in. So I'm looking to see if anyone else has had this problem.

    Two things to check.

    1. Install Service Pack 1 if it has not been installed. This corrects some word wrapping issues.

    2. See below:

    Microsoft Project will only wrap text in table fields if the following conditions exist:
    The row height is set to a number greater than 1.
    The column width is too narrow to display all the text on one line.
    The column is Left aligned. (This does not apply to Microsoft Project 2002.)
    The text includes spaces between words.

    NOTE: This last condition is especially important. Microsoft Project attempts to wrap text by breaking a line at a space between text characters. If your text string consists of a single line of characters with no embedded spaces, it will not wrap to a second line even if one is available.

    Sorry for the late response. Thanks a ton. I'm getting to install the update.
