Data Type Text List (text list field: A type of field whose content is a list of text items separated by the list separator character, typically a comma. Examples include the Resource Group and Resource Names fields.)
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 The Resource Phonetics field is used only in the Japanese version of Microsoft Office Project. It contains phonetic information in either Hiragana or Katakana for the names of resources assigned to a task.
How Calculated When you enter a resource name as associated with a task, Project enters an undetermined character string from the Input Method Editor (IME) into the Resource Phonetics field. You can also enter phonetic information yourself. The content of the Resource Phonetics field for tasks is similar to the Phonetics field for resources. However, the Resource Phonetics field can be used for multiple resources.
Best Uses Add the Resource Phonetics field to a task sheet when you want to display or filter phonetic information for resource names. You can use the Resource Phonetics field to provide for proper sorting and pronunciation.
