12.1. Displaying the @RISK Functions Column in @RISK for Project

Applies to:  @RISK 4.x For Project

How do I get the column labeled @RISK Functions to appear in my Project file?

The easiest way to display the column is to go to the menu in Project and choose View » Table » @RISK. (In Project 2010, View » Other Views » More Views » @RISK.)

You can also add the @RISK column to other views and tables. (By default, @RISK uses the Text1 column for distributions, but you can change that as described in Designating Columns for @RISK Functions.)

In Project 2007 and earlier, you can display the @RISK Functions column in any view as follows:

  1. Select the column to the right of the position where you want the @RISK Functions column to appear.
  2. From the menu in Project, choose Insert » Column. Project's Column Definition dialog appears.
  3. In the Field name area, choose Text1.
  4. In the Title area, type: @RISK Functions or any other name you wish.
  5. Set the Width and Header Text Wrapping Options as desired and click OK. The column now appears in your Project, along with any @RISK functions it may already contain.

In Project 2010 and later, you can display the @RISK Functions column in any view as follows:

  1. Select the column to the right of the position where you want the @RISK Functions column to appear.
  2. Right-click the column header and select Insert Column.
  3. A new column appears, with all available field names. Choose Text1. The column now appears in your Project, along with any @RISK functions it may already contain.
  4. Right-click the column heading and select Field Settings. In the Field name box, type @RISK Functions or any other name you wish.
  5. Set the Width and Header Text Wrapping options as desired and click OK.
