Project: Benutzerdefinierte Felder in andere Entität kopieren / Copy Custom Fields to Other Entity

Deutsch

Häufig wird in Foren die Frage gestellt, weshalb Werte benutzerdefinierter Felder in einer Ansicht nicht zur Verfügung stehen. Das liegt üblicherweise daran, dass das Feld für eine Entität erstellt wurde, die in der gewünschten Ansicht nicht zur Verfügung steht. So kann es sich um ein Vorgangsfeld handeln, das in der Ansicht Ressource: Einsatz nicht angezeigt werden kann oder um ein Ressourcenfeld, das in der Ansicht Vorgang: Einsatz nicht verfügbar ist. Das ist auch dann der Fall, wenn die Berechnung für Zuordnungszeilen auf Abwärts zuordnen, wenn nicht manuell eingegeben aktiviert ist:

Die Feldwerte können jedoch per Makro für jede Zuordnung von einer Entität in die andere übertragen werden. Um die Werte lokaler Felder zu übertragen, können Sie den Code für lokale Felder einsetzen. Wenn Werte für Benutzerdefinierte Enterprise-Felder übertragen werden sollen, verwenden Sie den Code für diese Felder.
Nach Lauf des Makros stellt sich das Ganze dann so dar:

SNAGHTMLb04d481

In Makros implementieren / Implement Macros wird beschrieben, wie ein Makro in Project übernommen werden kann. Mehr Beispielmakros sind unter VBA zu finden.

There is often a question in forums why values of custom fields are not available in a specific view. This is usually because the field was created for an entity that is not available in the view you want. It can be an task field that can not be displayed in the Resource Usage view or a resource field that is not available in the Task Usage view. This is also the case if Calculation for assignment rows is set to Rolldown unless manually entered:

The field values can be transferred via macro for an assignment from one entity to another. To transfer the values of local fields, you can use the code for local fields. If values for Custom Enterprise fields are to be transmitted, use the code for these fields.

After running the macro, the project looks like this:

Implementing Macros / Implement Macros describes how to apply a macro to Project. More sample code is available at VBA.
