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.

a others have said a wbs can not give you all of the items that you may want to filter and group and sort for

for example how would filter for a particular responsibility ?

activity codes give you much more flexability to filter, group, sort and export and import your data.
