    Hi,

    Project Standard is for single user desktop. Project Professional is what you need if you want to use the collaborative features that coordinate with Project Server. In Project Professional there are toolbar and menu bar differences that offer the options to work with the server product. You are not able to work with Project Server with Project Standard.

    I have worked with both products and did not see any difference in features other than the Server features. the interface is the same except there is an extra menu bar item and some additional menu and toolbar choices for Server options.

    Here is a link that compares the two products:

    Re: Standard v Pro (Project 03')

    Well that is kind of a yes and no answer.

    I worked as a contractor for Project Management company as a consultant and instructor for about 6 years. Along with that I was working as a database developer, so my Project background always gave me an edge with large organizations. Part of my position called for me to write courseware for classes I was teaching as what was available at the time showed features, not how to use the product in a real world application. I had a publisher in one of my classes last year that thought I should publish the book, but I just never pursued this.

    As of the first of the year I have taken a full time position with one of the organizations I was doing database contracting with. I work primarly with Access, SQL, and am trying to make the transition to .NET. I also work with a number of Lotus Notes databases. I have had to work with the Project software for a lot of organizations and I think you have to work with it to understand how to apply it in the real world.

    For what it is designed to do I agree it fits a need remarkably well. For anyone that has had to do what Project does on paper the software is a revelation.

    Carla,

    In a broader sense, how do you become a three star lounger, moderator or administrator, how do you earn your bars or stripes??

    See <!help=16>Help 16<!/help>. You "earn" a title such as 3StarLounger or SilverLounger by your post count - when your post count passes 200, you'll automatically become a 3StarLounger.

    You don't become a WMVP, Moderator or Administrator automatically, from time to time the current team will ask someone who has been very helpful to other Loungers to join them.
