In P3 3.1 is that possible to calculate the current total minus the target total float and put the answer in the column. The reason I’m using this option because if I use the varaiance target finish only give me the change of duration comparison not the slippage impact of the project.

Can you not establish your Target Project in the Project Overview dialog box (Targets tab)and have a column in your graphical view that shows Variance Target - Early Finish

Have your Baseline schedule as the first Target Variance column to compare with current.

This should show you a running tally for slippage.

Hi There,

The question is how to copy?

Global change is not possible.

How about:

Copy the target float figures into a custom field, then create a second custom field subtracting current float from the figure in the first custom field?

Is it really necessary to show the difference (current total float minus the target total float) in P3, if not I suggest to export your P3 data in Ms Excel and put formula in the difference column (present it in Ms Excel).

I hope these helps.

I broke my head over it but could not do it through global change.

There is a more crude method of exporting the Target Float and Current Float and importing the difference in a Cutom data column.
