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.

In P6 you have function called "Create Reflection".
Using this function it will create a copy project and change status to "what-if". The resource in what-if project will not be calculated when you analyzing resource.
You can make changes to what-if project to get the best solution in resolving a problem. Then merge it back to original project.

Hi Ken,

You could imagine temporarily change the status of a project from "Active" to "What if" if you want to consolidate without this part => Schedule Options allowed to take or not the relationship from & to other active projects. If you want to exclude only a single project of your consolidation, it could be a way.

Kindest regards.
