    Column Colors (2k3)

    Is there a way to change the background colors of cells in Project's Gantt Chart view? Like i want to highlight the % Complete column to be yellow... can that be done?

    John,

    I don't know of a way to change the background color of a column, you might select the column and change the font color or style to make the column stand out.

    Take a look at <post#=302674>post 302674</post#> and its strings for some options.

    yeah that was my conclusion Carla... i think its really odd how you can't do that though.

    Thanks, Gary, i thought about the graphical icon things, but i didn't know you could bring it into excel.

    John,

    I don't know if you are using the network diagram or not, but some versions of Project do not support bring Grahpical Indicators into this diagram. I don't remember for sure but I think Project 2002 was the first version where you had this ability.

    John,

    The graphical indicators are acually input into a column in MS Project but you could probably do it in excel as well. Its the next best thing if you do not want to color the text to make particular tasks stand out for some reason.
    Regards,

    Gary
