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.

I am having difficulty using Global Change to set to assign to an activity the Activity Project Code value from a User Defined Field Value, it forces me to mannually enter the Activity Project Code value, Why? it should allow me just to simply to make the code value equal the value in the User Defined Field.

as always the code defenition must be already setup

once this is done importing values from excel is much easier

why dont you export and activity to excel that has the global code and use it as a templete for importing values back into p6 via excel

Baz, do it via Excel Import - will be much easier to do than manually as you already have the values assigned in th UDF fields.

Yes, That would be a great idea. I suggested it to Oracle in 2011. Welcome to the club, Baz
