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.

Deleting of the data from the performance archive also deletes the original (planned) activity data.

Dear all,

I noticed the following behavior:

Deleting of the data from the performance archive also deletes the original (planned) activity data. As in the example below, after I have deleted the performance archive from Activity 1, it’s duration changed to 0.

Is it an expected behavior?  I thought that one of the advantages of Spider was the separation from original data and performance archive.

Regards.

Yes, it is expected behavior.

Entering actual data one may change estimates of remaining duration, volume, etc. If something was wrong in performance archive  (in other case why do you want to delete this record?) then it does not make sense automatically restore deleted data. Planned or remaining data may be restored manually or using formulas when current version is compared with the previous or with baseline.
