How to remove suffixes from dates and display both dates for milestones in Primavera P6

If you came into Primavera P6 from a Microsoft Project background, you would have noticed that actual dates have the suffix “A” appended to them, and constrained dates also have an asterisk appended. And milestones have a blank date field depending on the type of milestone.

In this YouTube video, I will show you a trick you can use to

  1. Remove the appended “A” from actual dates
  2. Remove the appended asterisk (*) from constrained dates
  3. Display finish dates for Start Milestones
  4. Display start dates for Finish Milestones
