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.

One of the most important pre-requisite to run a EV report in P3 is to have your schedule loaded with resources.

If the project is still in its early stage, it will be very easy to setup, otherwise you will need a lot of effort to report EV in your schedule.

In addition, in order to track back the progress already made in past reporting period. You have to rebuild your schedule with each individual month schedule and save each period performance. If you are not ploting the EV curve in P3 with period performance saved, you will need your client agreed to run the EV report outside P3. Otherwise what is in the EV report will be different to your current P3 schedule.

Types of reports that you can produce in P3 is EV S-Curve, (Using Layout) EV period table report.

Furthermore, there is a few tricks that you need to be aware of in P3 if you recording Actuals and have Target project in your existing P3 schedule. It will give you a wrong EV report if you are not careful with Budget, Remaining, actuals and Target Project.
