Formatting tables in a report
Under Medium , click the orange style (the third style in the top row; its ToolTip is
Medium Style 1 – Accent 2 ).
Project applies the style to the table.
Next, you’ll turn your attention to the large orange % Complete box in the upper-left
corner of the report. This element is also a table, but it contains just one column, the
% Complete field. Recall from earlier that you can include Project fields only in tables,
so using a single-column table (that is, the cell that contains the field’s value plus the
field name as the label) is a smart way to give visual focus to a single value like %
For this report, you want to show % Complete and % Work Complete side by side.
The difference between the two values is subtle but important:
▪ % Complete
The portion of the plan’s overall scheduled duration that has
elapsed so far
▪ % Work Complete
The portion of the plan’s total scheduled work that has been
completed so far
