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 managing two different projects for different clients in P6 that require the schedules to be published every week.  The clients require different column headers and so far I have had to keep changing the headers when I go to publish each project.  Does anyone know of a way of saving the customised headers to be specific per project?

Thanks

you can even export the layouts and send to someone else and they can import them and then they will not have to recreate them

Hello Thomas,

Go to View, Columns; then, edit the column header and key in the header you want for this particular layout

Go to View, Layout, and save the current layout; then open another layout and you wil see that the headers have not changed

Customising a column header as well as Gantt chart bars, or any other item is only valid for the current layout, and has no impact on the other layouts.
