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.

Hello, 

I'm assigning resources to activities on my plan and as the project has not started yet I would expect the remaining units to be the same as the budgeted units. So basically if I have a 5 day duration activity and the resource will work 20 hours against that activity I change the budgeted units to 20 but the remaining units calculates to 40 hours. 

Is there an easy way to change this so budgeted units and remaining units are the same?

 

Thanks

Hi Ahmad, 

Have you tried this:

In the Projects Window, in the Calculations tab - do you have "Link Budget and At Completion for non started Activities"  checked?

 

I'm sure that worked for me.
