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 just arrived on a project where they are using P6 8.0.

As I only have 7.1 on my machine the planner exported a xer file in 7.1 so i could view the schedule.

When i do a resource report there are some discrepancies.

If i run  RA-01  Resource Assignments report in certain cells the figures will be staggered. e.g the description will be in the planned units cell the planned units in the planned start cell etc.

Any ideas why this may be happening?

Thanks in advance.

Aidan

Thanks Forest

I actually figured out what was wrong after a while, it was a problem with the field delimiter setting in the report while running it. It was set up to see commas [,] as a space and therefore shifted or split the cell data based on the amount of Commas in the activity name.

Cheers

Try opening the xer as a text file and then import to excel, that will allow you to review the data in a raw form. Do the same with a v7.1 file and see what is different.
