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.

Hi Friends,

How to fiilter the activities of a particular month, which neither starts nor ends in that particular month, but will be in progress stage during that month. Assume as a baaseline schedule

For eg:

Activity 1: Dec 2011 to Jan 2012

Act 2     : Feb 2012 to Sep 2012

Activity3: Apr 2012 to Oct 2012

Activity4: Nov 2012 to Dec 2012.

I want to filter and see the activities during the time period of Aug 2012. Activities 2 & 3 are passing through the Month Aug 2012.

I filtered both with Early start/Early finish & start/finish-with in the range of Aug 01 & 31. but its not working.

Can somebody advise me with a solution.

Thanks

Kannan

if you only want to find passing thru Jan 2020 then

filter 

all

where Start is less than Jan 1 2020

and 

finish is greater than Jan 31, 2020

 

also if you want activities that happen during Jan 2020 you will need to use 2 filters 

use the 1st one I listed and add a 2nd filter

any 

where start within the range Jan 1 2010 (low value) and Jan 31  2020 (high value)

or where where finish within the range Jan 1 2010 (low value) and Jan 31  2020 (high value)

You have to at lest tell me what month you are looking to pass through ?

I think you are looking for 

activity status  equals in-progress

this will list any activities that have started but are not yet done.

Robert, your solution is very good, as we say at home very much better!

BTW as far as I can recall MSP have such filter pre-defined under the name of Date Range Filter.

It doesn't matter much, but a slightly quicker way to filter for a particular period is;

Where Start is less than 31-Aug-12

And Finish is Greater than 01-Aug-12

How to filter the activities of a particular month, which neither starts nor ends in that particular month, but will be in progress stage during that month?

How in progress filter will find out if will be in progress a few months after Baseline DD?

In progress between Aug. 1, 2012  -  Aug. 31, 2012?

I am not a P6 user any longer but maybe the above can be specified, in such case it should be enough to make the filter.

I dont know what your data date is but here is a solution

solution #1

filter 

where

Paramenter       is                                   value                high value

start               is within the range of        aug 1, 2012       aug 31, 2012

or

Finish                is within the range of        aug 1, 2012       aug 31, 2012

or 

activity status              equals                     inprogress

Learn to use the operators, any activity that complies with Condition 1 OR Condition 2 OR Condition 3 OR Condition 4 will make it.

==>> Do not use AND operator.

BTW as long ago I stopped using Primavera each day it passes it becomes more difficult to understand it.

Rafael's reply is the answer to any filter lookahead date problem

 

for your situation, condition 3

 

Filter specs should be:

 

All of the following

Start is less than or equals 01-Aug-12

Finish is greater than or equals 31-Aug-12

I do not use P6 but the following set of conditions can be a way:

  • Condition 1: activities starting within the date range.
  • Condition 2: activities finishing within the date range.
  • Condition 3: activities starting before the date range and finishing after the date range.
  • Condition 4: activities starting and finishing within the date range,

Learn to use the operators, any activity that complies with Condition 1 OR Condtition 2 OR Condition 3 OR Condition 4 will make it.

Best regards,

Rafael
