    change generic resource to a specific resource (20000)

    I frequently receive projects from outside vendors that list our company name as the resource. I would like to change our company name to specific people within my company so that I can monitor staff assignments. Is there an easy way to do this? Some of the projects contain hundreds of tasks, so going through each task is very time-consuming and tedious.

    Have you tried Edit/Replace, or is that still too time consuming?

    If you have a one to one change, that is where a generic name only equals a single employee, you could dump the data into Excel (copy-paste) do a v-lookup to replace the generic names then paste the data back to project. Save save save a copy before you start!

    Hope this helps.
