Getting at the Task Time Phased Data

Getting at the Task Time Phased Data

  • Comments 3

I have been asked many times how to get the task time phased data from the PSI. Unfortunately there is no way to get this through the PSI. I suggest that you either go to the RDB for this information or the cubes. Here is a quick example.

I created a project with one task and broke the work down over a week:

clip_image002

I saved and published the project so that it would make its way into the reporting database. Here is the query I wrote to retrieve this data:

SELECT     
  MSP_EpmTask_UserView.TaskName,
  MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay_UserView.TimeByDay,
  MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay_UserView.AssignmentWork
FROM         
  MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay_UserView 
    INNER JOIN MSP_EpmTask_UserView 
ON MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay_UserView.TaskUID = MSP_EpmTask_UserView.TaskUID WHERE (MSP_EpmTask_UserView.TaskName = 'Task 1')

Here is the result of the query:

  • Hi Chris,

    It is a pitty you can't retrieve it by PSI. However even the RDB only reveals the amount of hours. The contoured data, meaning when are the 2 hours on that day scheduled (eg 11:00-13:00) are not available in clear text in the RDB. The RDB has the contoured data only in binary format.

    It seems that calendars & contoured data are still in binary format, and the logic is only understood by winproj.

  • Hi Chris,

    It is true that the timephased data could be retrived from reporting database.

    The reporting database table values (AssignmentActualWork) gets populated only after publishing of the project. I want to retrive the actual work as soon as the resource enters it (through My Tasks page).

    Could you please provide help on how to get ActualWork day wise instantly.

    Thanks.

    Regards,

    Jabez

  • I've found you actually CAN get at the timephased data, but only where you are the assignment owner.  However, if you need enterprise-level reporting, this method is un-usable.
