Refresh from Microsoft Excel I have a challenge. In my new organization, they use Real Time Enterprise instead of MS Project. The Task Order Schedule is at least 9k lines. I can export to Excel but I’m not sure how to build a Milestone chart with the key deployment tasks that we need to monitor. What would you suggest? That RTE file has UIDs so that’s good. But I’m spending way too much time comparing last week’s schedule to this weeks.
Date heading only shows letter for part of the heading
My date heading shows some months with the full name and others with an abbreviation. Is there a way to make it consistent?

How can I move a group of symbols about 4 months to the right all at the same time?
