How to link Percent Complete to Progress Periods

Good morning everyone,

I would like to link the Percent Complete to the Progress Period so that when I am looking at each Progress Period, the Percent Complete entered will reflect that Progress Period. This relationship is present with the Progress Period dropline, so that if I display ultiple Progress Period droplines, they reflect the percentages I entered for the period. But once I enter progress into Percent Complete, this value in the spreadsheet doesn't change when alternating between Progress Periods.


Is there anyway to do this?


Many thanks,

Hi Cameron,

there is no such Progress Period in MSP as in Primavera P6;

the Progress Line does not store the corresponding data in a field available to the user; therefore, as far as I know, you should use a numeric custom field to key in the Period Performance every time you display a Progress Line

a time consuming process if I can say, and MS Excel would be a more appropriate tool for that
