I have revieved a schedule from another company to use as a basis for the one I am to create. When the schedule was originally created the scheduler was implemented some of the activites with "started and finished" dates under the "status" bar. I have removed the "started and finished" check marks assuming that the activities would now be sequenced/scheduled according to their assigned predecessor relationships but they are not falling in place as they should. Any recomendations?
I have tried adjust the schedule (F9) date, and it did not change anything.
There were never constraints applied to the activities. And I have not applied any since I have had the schedule.
On the statused activites that I have unchecked the start and finish boxes; they will simply move their "start" date to the scheduled (F9) date. But when they are "scheduled" their relationship logic will not be carried over, even when I remove their statused dates. Also their durations will appear as they should, but they will not be applied to the schedule.
Ex.) Activity 1: Duration-10 Days; But the dates will appear as Jan 14-2013 - Jan 14-2013.
The remaining durations are shown as 0, while the original are shown as their values. Is there a way that I would be able to make all of my activities based off of the "original durations" and not "remaining durations"?
