Created (task field)The Created field contains the date and time when a task was added to the project.
Critical (task field)The Critical field indicates whether a task or an assignment's task has any room in the schedule to slip, or if a task is on the critical path.

Duration VarianceThe Duration Variance field contains the difference between the baseline duration of a task and the total duration (current estimate) of a task.
Early Finish (task field)The Early Finish field contains the earliest date that a task could possibly finish, based on early finish dates of predecessor and successor tasks, other constraints, and any leveling delay.
Early Start (task field)The Early Start field contains the earliest date that a task could possibly begin, based on the early start dates of predecessor and successor tasks and other constraints.
Finish (task field)The Finish field shows the date when a task is scheduled to be completed.
Finish VarianceThe Finish Variance field contains the amount of time that represents the difference between the baseline finish date of a task or assignment and its current finish date.
Fixed Cost (task field)The Fixed Cost field shows any nonresource task expense.
Free Slack (task field)The Free Slack field contains the time that a task can be delayed without delaying any successor tasks.
Hyperlink Href (task field)The Hyperlink Href field contains the combination, or concatenation, of the Hyperlink Address and Hyperlink SubAddress fields associated with a task, resource, or assignment.
ID (task field)The ID field contains the identifier number that Project automatically assigns to each task or resource as you add them to the project.
IndicatorsThe Indicators field shows symbols that give you a heads-up about different aspects of each task or resource.
Late Finish (task field)The Late Finish field contains the latest date that a task can finish without delaying the finish of the project.
Late Start (task field)The Late Start field contains the latest date that a task can start without delaying the finish of the project.

Percent (%) Complete (task field)The % Complete field contains the current status of a task, expressed as the percentage of the task's duration that has been completed.
Percent (%) Work Complete (task field)The % Work Complete field contains the current status of a task, resource, or assignment, expressed as the percentage of work that has been completed.
Remaining Cost (task field)The Remaining Cost field shows the remaining scheduled expense that will be incurred in completing the remaining scheduled work.
Remaining Duration (task field)The Remaining Duration field shows the time that is required to complete the unfinished part of a task.
Remaining Work (task field)The Remaining Work field shows the time, such as person-hours or days, still required to complete a task or set of tasks.
Start fieldsThe Start field shows the date when an assigned resource is scheduled to begin working on a task.
Start VarianceThe Start Variance field contains the amount of time that represents the difference between a baseline start date of a task or assignment and its currently scheduled start date.
Successors (task field)The Successors field lists the task ID numbers for the successor tasks to a task.
Summary (task field)The Summary field indicates whether a task is a summary task.
Total Slack (task fields)The Total Slack field contains the amount of time a task's finish date can be delayed without delaying the project's finish date.
Unique ID (task field)The Unique ID field contains the number that Project automatically designates whenever a new task, resource, or assignment is created in the current project.
Work (task field)The Work field shows the total time scheduled on a task for all assigned resources, the total time to which a resource is scheduled on all assigned tasks, or the total amount of time scheduled for a resource on a task.
Work Variance (task field)The Work Variance field contains the difference between baseline work of a task, resource, or assignment and the currently scheduled work.
Cost (resource field)The Cost field shows the total scheduled or projected cost for a task, resource, or assignment, based on costs already incurred for work performed by resources assigned to the tasks, in addition to the costs planned for the remaining work.
Group (resource field)The Group field contains the name of the group that a resource belongs to.
ID (resource field)The ID field contains the identifier number that Project automatically assigns to each task or resource as you add them to the project.

Work (resource field)The Work field shows the total time scheduled on a task for all assigned resources, the total time to which a resource is scheduled on all assigned tasks, or the total amount of time scheduled for a resource on a task.
Cost (assignment field)The Cost field shows the total scheduled or projected cost for a task, resource, or assignment, based on costs already incurred for work performed by resources assigned to the tasks, in addition to the costs planned for the remaining work.
