Dear All

i tried to add the WBS name  starting of each  activity which falls in that WBS.

i used the global change

then

activty name  =  activty name  & wbs name

Andy,

The combining of parameters in the global change function works very well.  Exporting to Excel is cheating :)

Cheers

Dear All

I got it finally..

the global change criteria is .

 

where

blank....

then

activty name  =  activty name  & wbs name

then again run one more global change like this

where

blank....

then

activty name  =  any user text(@,& etc)  & wbs name

now apply changes.after that go yhe replace option and replace the character with space.this complets the task

so there is no need to export and import also

 

hope this helps

Hi Kumar

I'm not aware of a way of adding an extra parameter/value and operator to the global change, but another approach that might work is to export the project to Excel, under export type choose Activities.  Open the spreadsheet, concatenate the WBS and Activity names together ina seperate column and then paste the resulting values in to the activity name column save and import back in to Primavera?

Regards

Andy
