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.

Can anybody advise me how I can change the period of time in my project i.e. 1 year to 2 years in an existing P3e programme?

I don’t have that option.
If I click on PROJECT-

Activities
Resource Assignments
WBS
______________
Baseline
Expenses
Work Products and Documents
______________

Threshold
Issues
Risks
_______________
Set Default Project

My existing project has a project start date of April ’05 and a project finish date of March’06. I have now added in activities for April ’06. These activities are showing critical. My guess is that this is due to the project finish date.

I figured if I could change the project finish date it would sort out the activities that are showing critical.

Sorry Mario,

I cant understand what are u trying to do.

Do u have a timeschedule with 1 year durarion and whant to become it 2 years durarion, ok??

Does this timeschedule has any progress? Or it didnt start yet?

Probably u will have to change activity durations to achive 2 years, or detail more WBS inserting more activities etc.

My first impression is that u are replanning your project. Is that ok??

Regards.

Marcio Eduardo.
