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.

While creating resource database (Resources Window), you encounterd by two columns. One is Units/Time another is Max. Units/Time. My question is that what's the difference between these two? And also what is the use of Max Units/Time. Like if Default Units/Time is 8h/d and Max Units/Time is 10h/d. What is the difference between these two. When'll we use Max Units/Time (i.e. 10h/d).

Hi Asim

The  Default Units/Time of a resource (for example 8h/d) is to specify rate of work hours for one number of resource available while Max Units/Time  is used to indicate the maximum availability of that resource for e.g., multiple number of people available to do that work.  

For example, Max Units/Time of a resource can be 40h/d if you have 5 numbers of that resource available in your enterprise while its default Units/Time is 8h/day.
