Bars not filling to status date on imported schedule

Question:     

I imported my Microsoft Project schedule into Milestones Professional.  I want the bars to fill to the status date.  Most of them don't do this.  Why not?

 

Answer:

Some of the import formats (such as Coded Symbols and Bars) set individual percent completes for each symbol or symbol+bar+symbol combination.  This is because this import format typically puts multiple Microsoft Project tasks on a single Milestones Professional task row.

There is a simple way to remove all individual % overrides:

  1. On the Tools tab, in the Other Tools section choose Manage: Symbols, Pictures...

  2. In the drop down list, choose Manage Symbols.

  3. Remove all percent overrides from every symbol.

  4. Select OK.
