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 Louis

If your schedule if resource loaded i suggest that you use Physical percentage type. The advantage is that you can spit the remaining duration and the % completion. This is particularly useful when you apply Earned Value Techniques. The disadvantage is that you have to update every single activity and apply remaining duration and % complete.
