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.

Hi,

I am relatively new to planning, and I am currently working on a Project(Clients Side) where I have not loaded any resources. I am currently using MS Project 2007 adn would like to know how to get and S Curve in excell.

Also, I have notice that the baseline dates in MS Project can be chnaged from the column,unlike P6. Is this so or am i missing something here.

Hi,
I think in this situation PM can not direct show this S curve.Maybe PM can,but I do not know.
My suggestion is
1,Create a resource named A, labor or nonlabor is ok
2,Assign resource A to every activity. The Unit use the default value is ok.
3,Then use the Resource Usage Profile, we can see the Unit Cumulative Curve of resource A. The numuber/total unit is the percent complete.
Maybe above is not a good idea, only FYI.
