11.10. Gantt Chart: Number of Tasks Imported

Applies to: @RISK 6.x/7.x, Professional and Industrial Editions

I imported an MPP file that was created in @RISK for Project 4.x or in Microsoft Project, and the Gantt chart in Excel is not showing all my tasks. Is there some limitation on importing tasks to the Gantt chart?

There is no built-in limit to the number of tasks that can be imported, but @RISK 6.1 and newer show only 3000 bars on the Gantt chart (1500 bars in @RISK 6.0).

This is only visual, and does not affect the simulation in any way. All tasks are still simulated.

However, if the project has hundreds or thousands of activities it is usually better not to create the Gantt chart. This can be set as default in Application Settings or manually controlled in the Charts and Reports » Standard Gantt Chart dialog in @RISK.
