      Dear Team,

      1. How do we input quantities in MS Project Professional 2010 ?
      2. How do we show planned vs actual (both) bars ?

      Varun, I may need additional information before I can be sure to answer you questions.

      What do you mean specifically when you say quantities? Are you asking about entering materials like widgets or actual hours/costs? A Materials resource can be used to enter planned and actual materials used, and there is a Cost resource for entering straight costs.

      Planned vs actual what? The Gantt chart shows the % duration complete by default. It’s not exactly the easiest to use but the Bar Styles dialog box can be used to modify how the Gantt chart is displayed. There are several blogs and videos that can help explain how to use it if you need.

      Let me know if you need additional help.

      Thank you Larry. What I actually mean is Concrete in Cu.m., cement in bags, etc. for quantities.
      Planned vs actual means the Planned status versus Actual Status of progress or cost or earned value parameter

      That helps. Concrete and bags, or anything on a per unit basis, can be tracked using Material resources. Use Material Label for the bags, Cu.m., etc., then update using the resource assignment work and actual work column (not the task column). For indicating a status different than the calculated status you can use the Physical % Complete column. Hope that helps…

      I found the actual work column, but not resource assignment work column. Do you mean to say resource Group column ?

      Varun, it’s not a task level field. You will want to use the Task Usage, Resource Usage, or a split screen to update the units used. Hope that helps…
