  • Hello Experts !

    How can I count the number of resources ( say Mason ) required every month from my project plan ?

    In my project Plan I can allocate the resources and there numbers for each activity . For eg. mason[4] etc

    Thanks ,

  • In resource usage view you can insert "Assignment Units" column there it will list total number of particular generic resource used, then you can filter on Start and Finish Dates to get a monthly number. Else macro could be used to count monthly resources.

  • Hi,

    No need for a filter!

    Go to resoruce Usage view

    Right-Click on the graphical part

    Click Detail Styles

    In Available fields look for Percent Allocation, select, click Show

    Now set tle middle timescale to months or higher;, and the minor timescale to months.

    There you are.

  • Hi,

    I'm afraid what I gave you is the best way to answer your question. What more would you expect from a macro?
