Exercises

In the following exercises, identify and name a custom text field to be used for identifying the type of work needed for each task. The data entries for the field will be restricted to certain key words. Then that field is used in a custom table. Finally, the new table is included as an element for a new custom view. Work with the file, "New Product Hour 18.MPP." The completed exercises can be found in "New Product Hour 18-Exercises.MPP." See the Introduction for instructions to access the sample files and solutions for these exercises on the book's Web page.
