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.

how are budget ManHour’s spread?

Do they spread to the left of the data date?

How is remaining unit calculated?

How to compute actuals automatically?

budget manhours, when first assigned, are spread across the right of the data date -ie in the future.
You choose how it is spread (evenly, front-loaded, etc) by selecting the appropriate resource curves

How remaining units is calculated depends on the activity type (fixed units, fixed units/time, etc)

There is an ’Auto Compute Actuals’ option you can set. This updates the programme automatically, assuming everything has happened precisely as planned. This of course, makes it entirely pointless -you may as well just get a copy of the baseline prrogramme and tip-ex over the date.

All of this (apart from my rather jaundiced view of auto-update features) is in the e-manual that comes with the software -You’re probably best off reading that and having a play on a dummy project.
