What is in the eBook ?


All the information that you need in order to develop custom field formulas returning accurate results in all standalone desktop versions/editions of MS Project supporting this feature


Who should read ?


Professionals, who currently have knowledge and skills to use MS Project desktop as a planning and scheduling tool in managing projects; and who also want to learn how to make effective use of the custom field formulas while working on the project data


Why buy this eBook ?


The custom field formulas are mostly used to process projects' date and time information. Sooner or later, you will need to develop and use a custom field formula containing some combination of date values, date field references and MS Project’s built-in date and time functions in order to analyze the dates in a project schedule further in some way, since tracking a project requires focusing on the dates on schedules constantly.


This eBook will teach you how to utilize this advanced feature that will improve your productivity while working on the dates and times as well as the other kinds of project data such as duration, work, cost and text.


By reading this eBook, you will also gain a better understanding of how MS Project handles project data in the background. Also you will have a huge set of formulas to use in your work. It will also serve as a reference material since it explains how to use all the built-in functions with examples.


The content of the eBook (and the articles below) complies with the standalone desktop versions/editions of MS Project 2003 through 2016, except for the content related to the manual-scheduling feature which was added to the product with MS Project 2010. Any topic on planning, scheduling and managing projects with MS Project are outside the scope of this eBook and any formula implementations on specific areas that require focusing on the techniques rather than the feature itself, such as formulas for schedule health check and schedule quality assessment, are not covered.
