    TimeScale Window

    When entering a project, I would like the TimeScale Window to be at or close to the current date. Is there a setting somewhere that I have missed that would make this happen?

    Thanks!

    Re: TimeScale Window

    If you go to Project>Project Information, there is a field for the Projet Start Date. Filling this in will set the overall timeframe for the project plan.

    This normally defaults to your system's date when starting a new project. But you can force it to any date you wish.

    Hope that helps.

    Re: TimeScale Window

    I'm sorry, I didn't describe the problem very well. I have a start date for the project, which was the beginning of last year. Whenever I open the project, the timescale window starts at the beginning of the project. I am lazy and do not want to have to scroll over to this year, I would like the TimeScale window frame to start on today or at least this week.

    Thanks for you reply.

    I see -

    Try this mini macro and attach it to a new button on your toolbar. When you hit the new button, it will bring you to today's date based on your sysem's settings. Make sure you copy this into the Global.mpt file so it is available on all sunsequent files you create. You will have to add it to the existing files manually.

    Regards,

    Sub GoToToday()
    ' Scrolls the current View to the current date.
    EditGoTo Date:=Date
    End Sub
