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.

Problems change effect

I am almost afraid to ask but did you re-calculate the schedule?  P6 is not like MS Project in that the default setting is to not automatically re-calculate the schedule after any change.

Do you mean the Tool, "Apply Actuals" or "Update Progress" or are your referring to some other process?
