Troubleshooting

Some of your project information is missing

It's easy to apply a filter, work with your project information for a while, and then forget that the filter is applied. Then, when you look for certain tasks or resources that you know are there, you can't see them.

Check whether a filter is applied. Click the Project menu and look at the Filtered For command. If it says Filtered For: All Tasks Or All Resources, you know you're seeing it all. If it says Filtered For: Critical, for example, you know you have a filter applied. Click All Tasks or All Resources to show your information again.

When you have an AutoFilter applied, the Project menu might still indicate that you're showing all tasks or resources. If the Project menu indicates that you're displaying everything (but you're not), check whether AutoFilter is on. If it is, review your column headings and find the one that's blue. Click the arrow, and then click All to show all tasks or resources.

Note You can customize built-in filters and create entirely new filters as well. You can also create custom AutoFilters. For more information, see "Customizing Filters" on page 799.
