(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.

There’s also a book called "Construction Scheduling with Primavera Enterprise, 2nd Edition", by David A. Marchman. It definitely could be used as a training manual for the application; it’s very step-by-step oriented. I have found it helpful in a general way, although there are enough differences between P3e and P3e/c to cause some frustration.

Hope this may be of some help to you!

And it is an excellent book. Much better value than a training course. Highly recommended for people at all levels.
