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.

P6 LOE activities not honoring their logic

1 reply [Last post]

We have an issue where numerous projects (X,Y,Z) require an LOE activity to span the start and finish milestones of their relevant project. These LOE's are then all dragged to a single common project (B) for management use. When Project B is scheduled (to a data date in the past) the LOE activities disregard the logic links to their respective external projects and sit on project B data date. This only happens when projects X,Y & Z are closed and project B is open. When projects B,X,Y & Z are all open then the LOE's respect their logic links. Why dont the LOE's honour their logic to external projects when those external projects are closed?

make sure that the schedule options in the gneral tab that Ignore relationships to and from other projects is NOT checked.

also in the same window at the bottom make sure that calculate float based on finish date of Each project instead of Opened projects.

if that does not work then chnage it to calculate float based on finish date of Opened projects and then open the project and calculate the schedule.
