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.

changing original duration in resource tab won't work

hi all,

I kinda have a problem linking original duration from the STATUS tab and the one in the RESOURCES tab in P6.2.1.

let's take a random task :

OD 4

UPT 200%

BQ 8


till now it's normal, but when I change the OD in the RESOURCE tab (it's not present by default but we can add it) because right now it's easier to assign a *new* duration in here, the BQ is updated but the OD in the STATUS tab isn't.

and it doesn't work in reverse either, when I change the OD in the STATUS (or in the column I just added), it doesn't update in the RESOURCE tab, and it doesn't even recalculate BQ.


the problem is, I discovered this problem after having typed lots of new durations so I'm kinda stuck !


FYI, every task is set to "Fixed duration & units/time" (we need that), and I'd like to think I tried every possible combination in the options tabs everywhere.


am I missing something ?
