By Default, In Primavera P6, we get Mon, Tue, Wed, Thr, etc for Timescale setting Week/Day1 (Under Option “Show Primary Dates”). How to get numeric date value in this week/day1 setting like 7,8,9, 10 of May or June, etc?

If we use Option “Show Ordinal Dates”, we get continuous days from DD = Data Date or  CD = Current Date, etc which are negative values before DD or CD. This option does not fulfill my need. Please help in this matter. Thanks in advance.

Berker,

This "ordinal" selection makes the day numbers run past the number of days in a month.

Right Click to Timescale, select three lines format so you will be able to show both ordinal and primary dates.Select month/week from primary dates and select ordinal date interval to day.

Hope i understood you true.

Raymond. I'm not following you. I also cannot get the Timescale to show the Week Of/Calendar Day.

Zafar,

Use the Day/Shift and manage the view with sight lines.
