Creating Links by Using the Entry Table

You can create or edit dependency relationships in the Predecessors field on the Entry table (see Figure 9). The Entry table is the default table displayed in the Gantt Chart view. To see the Predecessors fields on the table, either move the vertical split bar to the right, or click the right arrow on the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom-left side of the Gantt Chart view.

Figure 9. You can also use the Predecessors field in the Entry table to add dependency relationships.

Tip

One of the most commonly used methods for creating predecessor/successor link relationships is by using the Entry table. Furthermore, you can add the Predecessor/Successor column to any table view by selecting a column in the table, clicking Insert Column, and then selecting either Successors or Predecessors.


You can enter the simplest relationship, Finish-to-Start, by just entering the task ID number for the predecessor task in the Predecessors field (or the ID for the successor in the Successors field). The other dependency relationships require a very specific pattern of coding.

Assume that you want to make the Pack Rooms task a predecessor with a Start-to-Start link and a one-day lead. The code in the Predecessors column would be 10SS-1d. The explanation for the code is as follows:

  • Enter the ID number for the predecessor first (in this case, 10).

    Note

    You can add the Successors field to the table and edit both predecessors and successors for tasks in the table.


  • Follow the ID number without any spaces by the abbreviation for the type of link (in this case, SS). If the link is the default FS, you usually do not have to include the abbreviation, except when you want to add a lag or lead. You must add the abbreviation in order to add a lag or lead.

    Tip

    If you do not remember the ID number of the predecessor, leave the cell you are editing selected while you scroll through the task list to find the predecessor task. Do not select the predecessor; just view its ID number. As you start typing, the row for the cell you are editing returns to the screen, and you can finish the link definition.


  • Optionally, you can follow the link type with a plus sign (+) for a lag or a minus sign (−) for a lead. You cannot omit the plus sign with a lag.

  • Follow the plus or minus sign with the length of the lag or lead, using duration units (that is, m, h, d, w, or mo), elapsed duration units (that is, em, eh, ed, ew, or emo), or a percentage sign (%). If the current example had a two-day lag, the code would be 10SS+2d. If the lag were two elapsed days, the code would be 10SS+2ed. If a lead were 10%, the code would be 10SS−10%.

If a task has more than one predecessor, you separate the predecessor definitions with commas without any spaces. For example, the code 5SS−2d,6,3FS+1d would link the current task to tasks 5, 6, and 3.

Note

You form codes for the Successors field identically to the way you form codes for the Predecessors field. The only difference is that you begin with the ID number for the successor instead of the predecessor.
