report: take over colors in grid view of a project



her's my build.

I have a project file (file 1) with all details of different project but always with the same structure with different colors.

  • Out of that I created a second PM file (file 2) with links to that main Project file (file 1).

--> Until now all fine thanks to the "link from other cell of sheet" this has the correct colors.

  • Last part based on file 2, I created a report. -> all fine except that the report is not taking over the colors in from the bars in the gridview.

Any idea how this can be resolved?

Many thanks for your feedback,
