I am looking to change the values that are available in the Rough Order of Magnitude list to something more useful for tracking purposes than 0, 1, 2, 3. Is it possible to change this in only one place Will the scenarios.xls file pick up the change

Thanks.

Absolutely!

First off, download the Power Tools if you haven't already (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa718351.aspx). Once you have the power tools installed you will be able to edit the work item from within Visual Studio by clicking on Team -> Process Editor -> Work item Types -> Open WIT From Server. Point to the url of your TFS install, once connected drill down into the project that you wish to edit and select "Scenario". You will be presented with a screen that allows you to change the server values. On the fields tab of the Scenario WIT select the field with the name "Rough Order of Magnitude" and click the "Open" icon near the top of the tab. Once on the field definition screen click on the "Rules" tab. With "AllowedValues" selected click the "Open" icon. You will then be able to edit the values to match your needs.

As soon as you save the WIT you should be able to open scenario.xls and see your values listed in the "Rough Order of Magnitude" drop down.

Hope that helps.
