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.

Why does, while we are summarizing the project with wbs level , any progress % (for eg activity % complete column), does not show any % at WBS level , even when we add resource & cost for all activities.

The summarized % column is blank....

Can anyone explain......

There are only two fields that would not summarize total in summary band, Physical % complete and Activity % Complete which is represented by Performance % Complete.
There are 3 types of % complete type, Duration, Unit and Physical. Duration is base on duration (Yr, Mth, Wk, Day or Hr), Units is labor, non-labor and material and Physical = Physical.
All three of them are represented by Activity % complete and Performance % complete (which ever is set on % complete type) therefore if total is required in summary band Performance % Complete should be used and if not then Activity % Complete is the appropriate to use.

To show the total in Summary Band, under Group & Sort -> Display Option tick Show Group Total.
