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 am taking over maintaining a schedule and do not know how to find the source of some Nonlabor Units that are being expended.

There are budgeted and actualized non-labor units for activities such as "Execute Contract" and "Prefab Meeting", but I don't see anything under Resources, Resource IDs, Cost Accounts, or Cost Account IDs.

These activities do not seem like they require any labor or non-labor resources.  I am concerned that this is going to come up as a question during the schedule update review.  Where can I find out what the units represent?  How can I remove them, or do I need to?

Thanks for your help.
