  • 959381  (/Feedback.aspx?kbNumber=959381/ ) Description of the Project 2007 hotfix package: November 12, 2008

This hotfix fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

  • After you modify a lookup table, the enterprise custom fields that are based on the lookup table are not displayed correctly in Project 2007.
  • When you print a project, the three-dimensional (3-D) bar shapes are not printed. Additionally, if you use the Print Preview option to preview the project, the 3-D bar shapes are not displayed.
  • Project 2007 still displays a plan as checked out after the Program Manager checks in the plan. Additionally, the plan is listed as checked in on the server.
  • You select the Restrict updates to Project Web Access check box on the Task Settings and Display page in Project Web Access (PWA). However, if you change the end date of a task, the actual work is changed in Project 2007.
  • The cost variance for cost resources is not calculated at the resource level in either the Resource Usage view or the Task Usage view.

    Note The cost variance is calculated correctly at the task level.

  • When Project 2007 connects to Project Server, the Graphs dialog box may not reflect the work or availability of the enterprise resources.

    Note To open the Graphs dialog box, click Build Team from Enterprise on the Tools menu, and then click Graphs in the Build Team for <ProjectName> dialog box.
