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 Mariya


I hope you are talking about P6.0

If yes, Then you have to decide on your settings for

(i) % complete type

    - Physical

    - Units



(ii) Activity Duration type

    - Fixed Units

    - Fixed Units/ time

    - Fixed Duration & Units

    - Fixed Duration & Units/ time


I am not clear with your situation but I feel a setting with a combination  of - (i) Units with (ii)Fixed units/time would give you what you are looking for.

With P3.0 the setting are different, a lot simpler but would not handle the variations in data input.


And about Grand Totals summaries, P6 uses Global default clendar to calculate summaries. So check what your Global Calendar settings are...
