Microsoft support engineers can help explain the functionality of a particular procedure, but they will not modify these examples to provide added functionality or construct procedures to meet your specific requirements. To set the percent complete for the project, set the percent complete for the project summary task as the following sample code demonstrates:
Sub Macro1() ActiveProject.ProjectSummaryTask.PercentComplete = 60 End Sub
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of Microsoft Project listed above. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
