Group/Organize the Column Data

Things that we should have done before export P6 data to excel are resource grouping and time scale format. Resource grouping represents what you want to report or analyze. Group the resource as total when you want to see overall summary data only. To view Group and Sort window, go to View >> Group and Sort by >> Customize. In Group and Sort window, mark on Show Grand Totals and Show Summaries Only to see overall summary data. See figure below.

Set the Timescale format

You may change the time scale format when you are preparing to export spreadsheet data. The exported P6 data would be displayed as weekly if the date interval is set to month/week. To see this changes, click the display button on the spreadsheet field area. Go to Timescale and you will see Timescale window >> set to Calendar in the date format type box and Month/Week in the date interval box.

Then what is next??
