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.

1. Before updating anything, create a taget schedule.
2. Display a the early bar using ES and EF as the start and finish.
3. Define a new bar and use T1ES and T1EF as the start and finish.

This should do the trick. You may want to give these two bars the same Position. If not, remember that Position 1 is drawn above Position 2 and so on.

Good luck.

When you originally set up your schedule and get it formally approved you should save a Target Project against which progress can be measured i.e planned v actual. If you have a copy of the plan before you started to update the progress you can easily achieve this by saving the master as a target of the schedule you are using now.

Hope this helps.

Hi Youngjian,

This is possible.Could you please register so that I can send you by email to your email ID an exhibit of Planned Vs Actual from a P3 report.

Hope this is fine with you.
