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.

I added 5 resources with varying budgeted hours to a task-dependent task set to duration type of Fixed Duration/units. Everything looked fine.

I exported that set of assigments to an xls file. I DID NOT OPEN THE FILE.

I deleted the 5 resource assignments, setting the activity's budgeted units to 0 in the process.

I imported the previously exported .xls file. All five resources showed up, but only one had any budgeted units on it, the number of budgeted units originally assigned (37 units over 30 days.)

All the other resource assignments had a zero in their budgeted units.

Where should I look?
