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 DO I STOP THE BUDGETED UNITS FROM OVERRIDING THE ACTUAL UNITS THAT ARE APPLIED TO AN ACTIVITY? ONLY HAPPENS WHEN I APPLY AN ACTUAL FINISH.

Jeremy,

I probably have more experience than all of them put together! And that goes for quite a few guys on this forum.

Thanks - You’ve done what our Primavera Rep. and Primavera help line could not do. That was very frustrating for our guys in the field and for me. -Rookie eh-

Loads of places you can make it do that!!!!

In the project tab, check under the "Calculations" tab that "recalculate actual unist an cost when duration % complete changes" is NOT checked.
