Hi everyone

Is it possible to concatenate the name of a sheet, with the Task Name, with the aim of showing it on the Calendar or Gantt Task Bar row?  

Many thanks

Lisa

    You would need a column or cell that contains the sheet name. Then you would use a basic formula to add the two cells together.

     

    =[Sheet Name]@row + " - " + [Task Name]@row

    .

    Of course that middle portion between the pluses would be whatever you wanted separating them such as a space or comma or forward slash or anything else.

  • Thanks Paul.  So I'd need to create a new column and put the sheet name in there - you don't think there's a way that SS could capture the sheet name without doing that?

    You could create a new column, or if you have an unused cell hidden somewhere on the sheet or you could even use a filed in the Sheet Summary to enter the sheet name.

     

    Then you would reference that cell or field in your formula to combine the sheet and task name.

     

    Otherwise... Andree is correct. There is no way to display the sheet name without having entered it somewhere on the sheet or sheet summary.
