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.

this can happen if you import a p3 project or a ms project into p6.

did you use any of these ? You have to chage a setting when importing these types of projects

to fix this go to tools global change


up top make under select subject area the sure that is says Activity Resource Assignments

Where resource equals non labor

then Budgeted Non Labor Units = Budgeted Non Labor Units / 8

to get the 8 in the paramater value select {Custom} then this will giev you teh ability to put a value in there

then on the right select change the bottom select committ changes
