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.

Very easy:
1. Open Resource Usage Profile
2. Push "Display..." within the lower left window the upper left corner. --> filter by --> Current Project’s Resources
3. Select your three resources (using Ctrl key)
4. In the lower right window you can see the histograms for all three with their overall limit.

If you want to see the columns as stacked histograms --> Push "Display..." within the lower right window the upper left corner. --> Stacked histogram --> work according to the help function

Good luck
Dieter

1. If you’ll want to keep the single assignments, just select all three resources. A common curve with an overall limit will be shown.
2. You one resource with capacity of three: Create this new resource then by "replace by" (icon right border of the P6 window) move all assignments to this new resource. Then set the single res. to inactive.
Good luck
Dieter
