Enterprise Required Values (resource field)

Data Type    Yes/No (Yes/No field: A type of field with content set to either Yes or No; also known as a Boolean field or a True/False field. For example, the Recurring field indicates whether the task is a recurring task.)

Entry Type    Calculated (calculated field: A field in which the value is determined by Project based on information in other fields. Project may recalculate the value automatically or when you specify, depending on your choice of calculation settings.)

Description    Enterprise custom fields for enterprise resources can be set to require a valid entry. The Enterprise Required Values field indicates whether the resource has the necessary required values for Microsoft Office Project Server.

How Calculated    If an enterprise resource has valid values for all required custom fields, this field contains Yes. If not, the Enterprise Required Values field contains No.

Best Uses    Use this field as a part of Visual Basic for Applications validation for resources who are being made available from or into the enterprise to ensure that all required resource information is present. You can also add the Enterprise Required Values field to a resource view if you're adding local resources to the enterprise resource pool and need to see which resources are missing required values.

Example    In the Resource Sheet, you want to see only those resources that have valid required values as dictated by the enterprise global template. You add the Enterprise Required Values field, and then filter for this field with a value of Yes. These are the resources that can be validated for the enterprise.
