Project level calculated custom field using project level cost


Hi All

I am trying to create a project level enterprise custom field which is based on a formula.

The formula I am trying to use is very simple - "project level cost field" / Cost

The issue I am having is that none of my enterprise fields which are project level are appearing in my insert field options, this means that I cannot find "project level cost field" to add it to the formula. Is this something which is standard with project online? if so is there a way round it?

Thanks for your help

Hello @Matthew Russell ,

You can type the name of the custom field, for example if the field is called "My custom project cost" type [My custom project cost] in the formula input box - including the brackets.


Hi @Paul Mather 


Thank you very much, that worked great. I always assumed you had to use the ones in the list.
