(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.

Hello All,

I have Prepared a schedule in P6 and after making initial schedule and Assigning cost to all activities (No Resource Loading Required for the project,only activity cost from BOQ),I saved the Schedule as Primry Baseline.Now When I update the Schedule the Bars before and after the Data date Line are broken.

This Problem is not occuring in Duration % Complete type.Can anyone tell me the reason?

One reason of activity bar was broken is due to out of sequence realationship with its predecessor. Eventhough your activity is in progress if its driving predecessor is not yet completed or meet their relationship, still the predecessor will push your current bar and it will only start again once your predecessor is completed; thus, made the bar broken.
