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.

Sir/s:

 

I am new in Scheduling.

I started to learn Primavera but I stumble with the Primavera own sample scheduling the "City Center Office Building"

How could it be that thte predecessor of Activity EC1090 is also EC1090 (below window) predecessor.

 

Thank you for the answer.

good call Rodel

John in the predcessor window add a column for Project Id and that will tell you if it is linked to another project.

Also if it is linked there should be an astericks next to the start date for that activity

I think you are right. you can find it actually in the sample database built-in in the primavera.

 

thank you

The only reason that I can think off is you link an external activity (another project) with the same activity ID to your project.

That is impossible an activity can not have itself as predcessor it wont let you 

also no window show below

look at it carefully maybe the zero is really an O in that ativity.
