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.

Hi all,

probably more aimed at P6 administrators...

I've been using P6 for monthly reporting for a long time now. Simple process of opening all relevant plans, then runnning a saved reort to output remaining early units by Activity ID. This month, all has gone wrong, but nobody has altered the reports at all. No matter what I do, P6 assumes I had dozens of other plans open (even if I only have one open at the time), and also won't output activity IDs.

Usual format is:

12345
    C0101M.001  Procurement
       Material expenditure only
    Subtotal
    INFL.Bal  Balance of Inflation - Escalation
       Contingency
    Subtotal
    C0101M.003  Procurement For Fixtures and Fittings (needs Parts list from Design)
       Material expenditure only
    Subtotal
    C0101M.005  Procurement For Manufacture
       Material expenditure only
    Subtotal

 

But now it's outputting as:

12345
    (12345)  (Project Title)
       Material expenditure only
       Contingency
    Subtotal

Any ideas befor eI ask our IT guys to remove and reinstall? Other users can run reports absolutely fine!

 

Thanks

Problem resolved!

It was related to temp files within my Windows profile. Deleted PM.ini, reconnected to database and all sorted.

Thanks for replies!

 

David - Not sure how I could do that without affecting other users? Do I have a user specific set of summaries that can be deleted?

 

Zoltan - thanks for the tip! It's an SQL database, so makes sense. What's the command that I would need to run to close?

are you running Microsoft SQL or the oracel database

you might have to run a SQL command to close all projects
