You can also establish a finish-to-start relationship by clicking the
predecessor, pressing Ctrl, and then clicking the successor task; then just click the
Link Tasks button on the Standard toolbar.
To establish a link in the Task Information dialog box or modify an existing
relationship, make note of the task ID number of the predecessor task and
then follow these steps:
1. Double-click the successor task.
The Task Information dialog box appears.
2. Click the Predecessors tab, as shown in Figure 6-5.
On this tab, you can build as many dependency relationships as you like.
3. In the ID field, type a task ID number for the predecessor task.
Alternately, you could select the task from the Task Name drop-down list.
4. Press Tab.
The task name and the default finish-to-start dependency type with 0d
(no days, the default unit of time) of lag time are entered automatically.
5. Click the Type field and click the arrow to display the dependency
types, and then click the appropriate dependency for your situation.
6. If you want to add lag or lead time, click the Lag field and use the
spinner arrows to set the amount of time.
Click up to a positive number for lag time or down to a negative number
for lead time.
