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.

I assumed that you want to apply actual on your target project to compare the actual vs. target. In P3 3.1 you can open the target project separately and apply the actual function then open actual project to have comparison. In P3e or P5 you don’t need to do that. You can display Schedule % Complete in your column and that gives you a comparison between Activity % complete on each activity. If you have (Target) Baseline project attached to your actual, Schedule % Complete will be based on your primary baseline.
