Are there resources on the affected activities? Is the At complete duration greater or less than the sum of the actual + remaining durations?
There are resources and the at complete is greater, but they are manually updating the numbers each week.
Just to note, the project was imported from MSP and there is a good chance that activty types/duration types/duration % complete may have been changed after activities have started.
There are always issues when a project is imported from MS Project to P6. Durations (Original and Remaining) are particularly susceptible to changes during the import. You should perform a comprehensive comparison (between MS Project and P6 versions) to see what has changed, and make the necessary changes.1 person found this helpful
Two settings to check:1 person found this helpful
1. In the projects screen under the defaults tab. Duration Type. I almost always use "Fixed Duration and Units"
2. Same setting but at the activity level. General tab. Duration Type. Again I use "Fixed Duration and Units"
Theses settings will determine how the durations are calculated. Check to see if the import from MSP causes these to change.
KB 891488.1 has the descriptions of these settings.
Thanks for the suggestions. I know the activty default on the project was originally fixed units & time when the import was probably done, but all the activities in question are fixed duration & units.
I appreciate your help with the question.
