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.

Assign resources to the same activity more then once

Hi!

I assigned one resource several times to the same activity. When I do export/import (xer-file) several assignments disappear and stay only one. Why? In resource assignments settings I marked that resource can be assigned to the same activity more then once.

Best regards,

Valerii.

Thanks, for this post back in 2009. I've successfully used this trick while updating changes to my baseline. Cheers!

Not if you’ll choose the option "Update existing" for resource assignments.

Hi
is doing, there is a trick to avoid this

if you apply a different cost account for each of the resoruce assignment they will remain, otherwise when import back the XER you will have only one

Hope this help

In the user-manual (PMRefMan.pdf) there is Chapter 6 for Export/Import of data. Your item is in the part "Importing Projects" --> "Import Project Options" --> check for the resource assignments and choose the same option as mentioned there.

Good luck!
