Re: how can I highlight an overrun task in projects 2007


If you mean "overrun" as the Actual Cost being greater than the Baseline
Cost then you can set up a custom field which provides a flag for any task
matching the criteria you've set up (i.e. Actual Cost > Baseline Cost). You
can also use the "Work Overbudget" filter to see only those tasks where Work
is greater than the Baseline Work. Whenever possible use the filters to
narrow down tasks to review.

May I ask for some clarification?
What is an overrun task? How do you enter the fact that it is overrun?
Where do you want to highlight it? In the tabular part of the Gantt Chart?
As a special Bar?
Ready to help as soon as I understand!
