A field other than the one you selected appears next to a bar on the Gantt Chart. For example, if you attempt to show the Preleveled Start field next to a bar, the Resource Group field will appear instead. For a list of the fields that are affected by this behavior, see the "More Information" section of this article.


This behavior occurs whether you double-click a bar or use the Bar command on the Format menu to specify which field you want to appear next to the bar.


To work around this behavior, remove the bar formatting and then add text to the field by following these steps:

  1. Remove the bar formatting.
    1. Select the task with the bar formatting.
    2. On the Format menu, click Bar.
    3. Click Reset.
  2. Add text to the field.
    1. On the Format menu, click Bar Styles.
    2. Select the bar type you want.
    3. Click the Text tab.
    4. Add the field you want to appear.
    5. Click OK.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of Microsoft Project listed above.
