      Hi Folks,

          Data Date is by project not activity so I don't believe there is an inherent way to display it in the activities view. There is a column for Data Date that can be displayed in the projects view.

          Out of curiosity, what is the business case for wanting to see the data date by activity?

            Thank you. Actually, I have multiple projects and I would like to create a look-ahead report, so I need to show the data date for each activity.
            I know that in the project view we are able to provide Data date column, but I was not able to add data date column to the Activity view.
            I wished that there is a work around in Report view, Export file, or in P6 activity view itself.

              For one project (baselined or not), a data date remains common for all the activities, ie, there is only one data date for allt he activities in a project. Therefore, if you must display it in any of your reports, you can display it as one of the header / footer options.

                From what I understand, you have multiple projects open at the same time and you want Data Date displayed as a column, right ?

                You can add a UDF and use global change or import/export with excel to store the data data for the individual projects. When you open the projects together you can stick the UDF column in and there you go.

                I don't think there's a direct way of doing it in P6.
