Dear All,

Kindly note that I have a project with 500 activities and I assigned resources for it but I have a big problem:

I have resource R#1 18h/d and for example I assigned it to activity AB with budget unit = 100hrs this activity duration is 15days.

When I changed this duration to 18 days this budget units changed automatically to 120 hours which not correct/applicable at all I need to fix the budget unit to be 100hrs even I change the duration.

How can I do this by default way please by steps and kindly note that it is urgent?


Best Regards,

Abeer

Thanks Ronald;
I selected Activity Duration Type (on the General Tab) to “Fixed Units” and it worked.

Best Regards,

In P6, the activity duration, resource quantity, and resource rate are always balanced. To fix the activity duration and the quantity (budget), then it is necessary to set Activity Duration Type (on the General Tab) to “Fixed Duration & Units” and let the rate change as needed. Good luck!
