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.

Hi Emily

Thanks for this guide.

The examples of "External Constraints" - Weather and fish breeding are best set on the calendars.

Asta PowerProject is more realistic as it will not allow negative float - the constraint has to be adjusted/removed before the true completion date is displayed.

My approach is to never use constraints at all.

Best regards
