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.

please check "duration Type" 

set to "fixed duration and Units/Time"

and then if you add a new resource, the budget will be calculated as duration*Unit/Time

for example, you have an activity with 10 days duration, and you add a resource A (8.00/day) to it, then the budget will be 10*8=80.

if you add another resource B (4.00/day) to it, then the budget will be 10*4=40, it will not share the budget from resource A

it did nto split your budget what it does by default is if in your resources your max units/time isset to 8 hours per day it multiplies 8 times the duration to get your budgeted manhours. You can then revise the budgeted manhours as needed.
