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.

Remaining Units not calculating - why?

I'm back using P6 after a few years off and have been tasked with creating a resource histogram that shows the remaining hours.

Each time I run the report it is showing me the remaining actual units and not the remaining to earn.


Budget = 240, % Comp = 95%, Actuals = 210, Earned = 228

When I run the report it should tell me I have 12 hrs left remaining, however it says I have 30 hrs left.

I have my activities set up as Task Dependant, Fixed Duration & Units & Physical % Complete.

Any ideas?


Many thanks,

are you updating remaining duration ?

what calculation are you using for earned value  ?

this is under

Admin Preferences

then the Earned Value Tab.

Technique for  computing Estimate to Compete (ETC) 

and  at the bottom Earned value calculation should be Earned value with current dates
