    Deadlines (2000)

    Is there a way to filter for tasks with missed deadlines when I am still working at the planning level rather than recording actual? I can see that an information icon appears when a deadline is missed but there doesn

    Hi Alice,
    I am looking in Project 2003 so I hope you have the same options, if not repost.
    Right click any column in the Task Entry table and select Insert Column
    From the field list select Deadline
    Turn on Auto Filter
    Click the Auto Filter list for the Deadline column and select Custom
    Select "does not equal" from the first list and " <img src=/S/stop.gif border=0 alt=stop width=26 height=24>" from the second list
    if you don't have these options try "greater than or equal to " in the first list and use the current date in the second list
    If you like the filter and use it frequently you might consider creating a named custom filter.

    Well for the third try ( these smileys do not show in the preview)
    Use not equal to in the first list and the word Stop in square brackets in the second list

    Thank you for your replies - with and without the smileys!

    I do have those options in 2000 but the result of the filter includes all my tasks in the plan with deadlines whether or not the deadline is missed in the plan. I was wanting just to show those tasks I have planned but which, in the plan, have missed the deadline - even before I put any actuals in.

    Another option would be to set a filter where Planned Finish is < Now() or the current date.
