The HEALTH Lookup Table in MS PROJECT SERVER 2010



In next couple od posts, I will explain some default lookup tables in MS PROJECT SERVE 2010!

Today I will show you default Health custom field, and lookup table in MS PROJECT SERVER 2010.

The Health custom field can be found here:


and then here:


When I click on this field I will get:


As you can see, this field is a text type, and it has a lookup table named: Health, so when the user will pick a health field, he or she would be able to choose value from a lookup table, and he or she will not be able to enter anything what is not in this table.

What is the purpose of this field? Well, let us look at lookup table.


When I choose this table I will get:


It has six default values:

  • Not Specified
  • On schedule
  • Late
  • Early
  • Blocked
  • Completed

Now you get an idea of this field purpose! It will be used to track Task health condition. Since I do not like those default values I will make my own:


What each of this values means is written in Description column.
