Material Cost, Work Cost & Total Cost RRS feed

  • Question

  • In a task usage view a total cost column is available. Since project calculates the material cost and work cost for each task, can columns be inserted for the task material cost and the task work cost?

    No, there are no columns that break down costs by Material costs and Work costs.  Sorry.  Hope this helps.

  • Any resource suggestions about defining formulas in Cost1, Cost2, etc columns to create Material costs and Work costs?

    If you display the Resource Usage view, apply the Cost table, and then apply the Resource Type group, you will see the cost totals you seek for Material and Work resources.  Beyond this, I cannot see any easy way to use custom columns with formulas to gather the cost data you seek.  Hope this helps.
