Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Good day Experts,

While changing the timescale from Days to monthly or quarterly or yearly in MS project, I'm getting the error of "Invalid argument" because of that, I cant able to change the timescale in MS project and the same MPP file I can able to change timescale in my colleagues laptop and its not able to change timescale in my laptop.

Kindly suggest.

make sure the lower level in the timescale is not larger than the upper one:

for instance upper level = week, step: 1 is not compatible with lower level = days, step: 8

if the problem is not this one, I suggest you re-install MS Project
