Hi Mohammad,

You can copy and paste to excel the layout that you have in your Project Portfolio or Project Layout then you can do any counting or any formatting on your report. The best and quickest work around on your problem.

If i type in UDF, it will not show consecutive number after filtering or grouping a specific code. Can we count the specific code in P6 professional and put in reports? This may fulfill the need. For example if i froup the open projects i want to show the numbers against open open project heading like 10 or 20 what so ever.

Hi Muhammad,

Primavera (P6) has no Auto Number Project Code in the system. The Line number function is only for Activity level.

My alternative solution is to create a Project Users Define Field  with integer settings and manually type the numbering system.
