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.

While scheduling my project, my schedule % complete value increases for few seconds on the screen and later it adopts the previous constant value. I mean my schedule % complete value is not changing. Any leads please?

EVERY activity in the schedule MUST have a successor except the last one.

I guess I have fixed it now. For this I have taken the following three actions. Probably anyone of these three actions have brought me on the right track. 1. I reduce the price per unit of each resources to 1$/ unit. 2. Many of the equipments' last activities were not having successor . So I assigned a successor. 3. All of the equipment's first activity were sharing same predecessor despite of having internal links between them. So removed all the predecessor except few leading equipments. May anyone of the above worked for me. Thank you so much for your support.

For Schedule % Percent completion, Check following

1. Make sure your data date is valid

2. Your baseline must be assigned. 

However, for WBS, cost must be assigned to activites.

Check above points and schedule again by pressing F9.
