Chapter 12. Reviewing the Project Plan > Using the Custom WBS Code Formats

Using the Custom WBS Code Formats

WBS stands for Work Breakdown Structure. In previous versions of Microsoft Project, there wasn't a convenient way to set your own numbering for the WBS codes. The WBS numbering was based on the task list outline. For example if Planning was the first task in the list, it would have WBS number 1. If Review Impact Study was the second task in the list, indented under Planning, it would have WBS number 1.1.

A new feature in Project 2000 allows you to specify the format for the WBS codes. The WBS format now allows both numbers and letters. So if you want the code to combine a number and letter format (such as 1, 1.A, 1.A.1, 1.A.2, 1.B, 1.C, 1.C.1, 1.C.1.a) you can designate that format.
