How to spread fixed costs over an entire project in MS Project 2010?
Posted on 2011-10-03
In prior versions of MS Project, one could easily spread a fixed cost such as overhead across an entire project by assigning the cost as a resource to the project summary task. In version 2010, that is no longer possible. After doing some research, I attempted to set up my overhead expense as a budget cost: I checked the budget box on the resource information box and created a budget cost column on the resource usage sheet, but was unable to enter a corresponding dollar amount on the sheet.
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, and would certainly appreciate some assistance!
