Hi,

I am generating a engineering schedule. Our Client has asked to present schedule that it lists the control gates under each WBS.

I have listed the Deliverables at WBS level and would like to have the WBS name concatnated with the Activity Description.

For EX. P&IDs -- WBS Level

            P&IDs - IFR - Activity Level

            P&IDs - Receive Comments - Activity Level  so on for other control gate

the reason behind is without the description makes it difficult for sequencing.

Can some one guide me how this can acheived if possible.

Thanks in Advance,

Rajkamal

Select Global change under Tools

 1. Create a New Global change

 2. Open the New Global Change

 3. Under the Select Subject Area to the left select "Äctivities

4. Under the first Option box set Paramater to "Any of the Following"

5. "Where" set Paramater to " Activity Name" " Starts with" " IFA/IFR/IFI"- the operator "OR" should be used for different Lines this shall be as per the line in the p6

6. Then in the output condition box the parameters as " Activity Name"  "=" Paramter Value "WBS Name"" operater "&" Äcivity Name".
