Hi,

Remember, that you DO NOT have to be Administrator for Publishing the Project, as long as you have rights to do it!

I will get:

NOTHING! Is it a Bug? No it is not! My Project is not Published yet, so it is invisible here! how do you know that I am not an liar? I will try to exit MS PROJECT 2010 Professional and I will get:

So it is a warning message that I did not check in Project to Project Server. I will show you another way!

Since I am logged as an Administrator I will go here in my PWA:

    Hi, Nice work by the way!!!… I was wondering if you could advise me? We are developing a Server 2010 instance and have managed to install and deploy. We have published several projects and would like to start developing reports, however when we log in to SQL server management studio there are no tables or views in ProjectServer_Reporting. I was under the impression the reporting database would be built when the first project was published. I have tried rebuilding the reporting database to no avail!! Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.

    Sir,
    I’m really impressed with all the works that you’ve done, and your robust knowledge about project pro and microsoft project server. I have one situation right now with my PWA and project pro for one particular project.
    In the PWA view, I can see the ID and the sequences of the tasks in the right sequences from 1-67, But when I open it with Project Professional, some tasks are not in the right place, and whenever I changed it, moved the tasks to it appropriate place, saved and published the project; It didn’t work the next time I open it.

    one thing that I noticed from Project Pro, when I moved 1 task, for example, task 3 to it right place before task 4, clicked saved, and published, but if I click the Gantt Chart button in the Task ribbon, it will move my task from the right place to the wrong place.

    Please help me with this problem, I really appreciate it.
