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.

Can Somebody help me.

im a Junior planner working on my first planning report that needs to be submitted later today.

I attended a P6 course earlier on in the year and need a recap on how to print off resource histograms and S-curves.

I've got my P6v1 Manual infront of me and i cant seem to find in it how to do this.

I need to be able to do this in P6 and P5.

I have a query related to this post. It seems that P6 is showing independently the histograms and curves for budgeted, actual and remaining. What I want is to show that the remaining curve will start at the endpoint of the actual. (remaining is the continuation of the actual) The same as in P3 (Current vs Target 1), the two curves can then show if at the end of the project your actual project cost is higher or lower that the budjeted cost.

Any possible solution?

Thanks in advance.
