(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.

Dear P6 experts;

 

I'm facing a big problem to load ressources to P6, 

My ressources are assigned to the BOQ Items, and the BOQ items are assigned to the activities  for exemple:

1.Activity Foundation:

      1.1. Concrete (BOQ)

          1.1.1 worker

          1.1.2 Formen,,,,,

      1.2. Steel (BOQ)

          1.1.1 worker

          1.1.2 Formen,,,,,

In this case the ressources workers and Formen are repeated two times on the same activity, and when I'm import it from Excel to P6 only one time of the repeated ressources are imported!!!

So How can import to the same activity repeated ressource with diffrent Qty???

 

Your help will be appreciated, Thank you all in advance.

 

Best regards.

You can create your subdivisions( concrete,steel) as cost accounts and assign them to resources under same activities, so you can make a difference with your same resources.

Maybe my question is not clear, but for those who understand me, to avoid missing on data loading, we have to check double Activity-ressources and summaries them using excel.
