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.

Hi Andrew,

Even though, Paul Harris Book is the BEST BOOK on P6 in the town, but still there are lot of areas still need to be addressed in detail like COST/BUDGET, REPORTS, Primavera Charts, Claim Digger, GLOBAL CHANGE and if possible, some of the key prim solutions.

I have purchased the book and still believe, if PH covers cost/budget in detail, then it will be worth of what we are paying....

All,
I have successfully used the book written by Paul Harris, (Project Planning & Control Using Primavera P6), to train the beginners in my team.

The book is very good to use and all of my team who have used it have found it easy to work through the exercises and have developed a good level of knowledge on the tool.
Nothing beats using the tool in anger however, but using this book helps develop the basic skils.

A. Magsi,

I think you got a blank P6 database. You can’t create a project without an EPS.

Go to Enterprise > Enterprise Project Structure > Add EPS.

Let us know if the above works for you.

Hi Samer!

Please DON’T send me the email...or the book..which-ever it was that you didn’t offer to send.

Thanks,

Oh No! I’m turning into Joel...! Ach...could be worse...SA could’ve embarrassed the Jocks, as well as the English, at the 6 nations.
