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 All,


I want the actual units of a certain (Labor) Type resource and not the actual units of the combination of resources allocated to the activities to update the UNITS % COMPLETE .  e.g.,  for a given task, i have two types of resources allocated to it, one of type LABOR and the other of the type question : can the UNITS % COMPLETE be only updated based on the quantities of the LABOR type only resource?


Thanks a bunch

P6 considers only labour & non labour units for deriving units % complete and will not consider material units for calculating percentage complete.

The calculation of Activity % Complete = Units % Complete = (Actual Labor Units + Actual Nonlabor Units) ¸ (Actual Labor Units + Actual Nonlabor Units +Remaining Labor Units + Remaining Nonlabor Units).

If multiple resources have been assigned to the activity it would be sum of all labor and nonlabor units.
