Hi, 

I have a question, please help me. 

I revised durations in a schedule at P6 regardless of remaining units and remaining duration and submitted to HOD. 

The original budget available and duration type already defined by previous planner is fixed duration & units. 

The client asked to revise the budget and add the revised budget in P6 and then from P6 take the weekly planned budget. 

How can I revise the budget unit without changing the duration and date?

If I add the remaining units, the remaingin duration will change, so current completion date also will change. 

Please support me how to revise the budget units without affecting claimed completion dates and how to extract weekly budget unit from p6, same what we defined in excel in terms of weekly man-hour histogram????

Hi, 

It is requested to show only procurement activities in P6 and all other ativities should be shown in summary level (wbs level). 

I filtered but summary of other activities are shown without date and without gantt chart bar.

Please help me in this case.

filter for ALL activities add a column look under the General Category and bring activity TYPE to the right

on the first activity at the top in the activity type column change it to fixed duration and units/time

now do a fill down in that column

now go to the Projects directory

make sure that your project is highlighted

click the defaults tab and select fixed duration and units/time

done

Hi, 

Is any body can explain me about activity code and how to define new project activity codes? 

I want to define activity codes to filter easily accordingly.

Hi, 

How to make Duration % complete equal to physical % complete in P6?

Then, whenever we enter physical % complete manually, the duration % complete also updated same.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANSWERS. 

I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION IN P6?

I added I added remaining unit for an activity, after re-scheduling the start & finish date will change without respecting to predessor. When I remove the remaining unit, It follows the relationship. 

Could you tell me how to avoid changing of dates in this situation?

got to tools Global change and add a new global change

where  physical percent complete is greater than 0

then duration % complete  = physical % complete

then execute the global change press change

then committ chnages

do this afret each update after inputting ALL physical % completes

and before you calculate the schedule
