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,

 

When I manually tick the start option of a task and then hit shedule, the successors will fall back to the data line.

 

The same thing happens when I Manually complete a task the successors will fall back to the dataline.

 

Is there anyone with a solution to this problem?

 

Thanks

 

P.S. Manually complete or start meaning not with the datadate update.

Hit F9 --> Options --> "General" tab --> check retain logic option.

HI Anas

"You are probably suing progress override option in the advinced schedule options menu. Change this option to retained logic and successors will not fall back on the data date."

 

Where do I find this option, I am using P6.7?

 

Thanks

Are the actual start/end dates you are manually entering earlier or later than the data date?

 

When you say "fall back" to the data line, do you mean the successors become later than they were showing before you scheduled, or earlier?
