Step 2.

I don't believe the website appears like this anymore. Or this is incorrect and step 2. and what follows is incorrect.

Note from the Author or Editor:
On page 39, change step 2 to: 2. If the Getting Started with Project 2010 page is not showing, click Project, as shown in Figure 1-31. In the Figure 1-31 caption, change to “If necessary, click Project to see resources for Project 2010 on” I n the list paragraph after the caption, keep the first sentence. Change the second sentence to “This page includes links to videos, training, interactive guides, and more information.” After Figure 1-32, delete everything from “The following are some highlights” to the fifth bullet and its list paragraph. If this causes a problem with pagination, let me know, and I’ll suggest other text to take its place. But the Project page on has changed so much from when this was written.

Final paragraph

To open a hyperlink, CTRL needs to be held down while clicking on the hyperlink icon.

Note from the Author or Editor:
On page 98, last paragraph (2nd list para under step 4), change the first sentence to: "Now, whenever you need to review the document or go to the website, just hold down the Ctrl key and click the Hyperlink indicator. Or, right-click the Hyperlink indicator, point to Hyperlink, and then click Open Hyperlink." The second sentence ("The document...web browser") can remain as it is.

Top bulleted list

Directions to import Excel file do not correspond to what the user sees. Bullet 7 says Click Project Excel Template but that option is not available. The Wizard asks Create new map or use existing map? on the screen that shows up when following the instructions. The import does not work as described and the user needs to resolve a subsequent series of non-intuitive questions.

Note from the Author or Editor:
On page 107, replace steps 7-9 with the following steps: 7. Be sure that the New Map option is selected, and then click Next. 8. Specify whether you want to import the file as a new project, append the tasks to the currently active project, or merge the data into the active project. 9. Click Next. 10. Select the Tasks check box, and be sure that the check box labeled Import Includes Headers is selected, and then click Next. 11. Be sure that the Source Worksheet Name box specifies Task_Table. This ensures that the Excel fields are correctly mapped to the corresponding Microsoft Project fields. 12. Click Finish. The tasks are imported into Project 2010 as you specified.
