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.

I was told by one of my colleague to use the top down estimation to arrive at a particular cost estimate per activity. I tried already putting the total project value in the WBS window - tools - top down estimation. Then i assign the project - then the resource. Afterwards, write down the total amount accross resource current units. However the total amount shown on top of the column for activities window is not the same as the value i inputted. 

Please advise on what mistake i have done. 

thanks so much and i would appreciate your help.
