Q&A

Q1:Should I print views or reports, and how do I know which one to print?
A1: A view prints the information currently displayed on your screen, including displayed columns. The formatting for any task or group of tasks, as well as Gantt Chart bars and some Usage rows, can be changed in a view. Reports are the better choice for more detailed information that can answer a specific question about your project plan. For example, which resources are overcommitted and what tasks are they assigned to? The Overallocated Resources report lists those resources and their assignment lists, as well as each resource's total work, effort, and start and finish dates for each task.
Q2:I'd like to add the Task ID column to the left side of the Who Does What When report. How can I do that?
A2: The short answer is: you can't. You can see in any Crosstab report definition dialog box, there is no option to include extra columns on the report or to print a certain table of columns. This feature of the report can't be changed.
Q3:I changed the sort order on a Crosstab report. Now the page breaks aren't where I want them to be. How can I fix this?
A3: The setting for a manual page break is associated with the task or resource row where it was set. The break is not associated with, for example, a set number of lines. So, sorting a task or resource view from within a report definition causes the manual page breaks to move with the sorting. It's better to sort the view first, exactly as you intend to sort the report, and then insert manual page breaks on the sorted view.
