    Bob,

    The priority field is used during leveling operations and are assigned a range from 0 to 1000. Project assigns by default the value 500. When leveling, project will use the priority value to choose between tasks to delay. Tasks with lower priorities (i.e., closer to 0) are delayed first when leveling. There is also a priority you can set at the project level but that is something else also used during leveling.

    To get the gantt bars to different colors, rather then use the priority field, use the Flag Fields for each task. The select Format, Bar Styles, select the Bar, select the flag and set the bar colors.

    HTH
    Regards,

    Gary
