## Meassure with W.B.S and Path

Hey guys, I hope you find yourself great.

I'm struggling with calculations using Path in a WBS case.

Suppose that I have a project plan with its tasks, where I have the Physical Advance of those tasks that are not Summary Tasks.

I need to calculate for those tasks that are Summary (Summary = "Yes") the physical advance.
The advance would be = (Duration * Percent Complete)/Duration.

The thing is that I don't know how to filter, for example, in task 2 all those No Summary Task belongs to 2 as a child.

Thank you in advance.

Hey Juanli, thank you for your answer.

Your thoughts are not quite correct.

The thing is that, when I want to calculate the % for task number 1 y need to calculate the Advance function for every task that is
1.(something) WHILE NOT BEING SUMMARY.

I managed to do this creating a duplicated table, keeping only whe WBS and duplicating again that column.

With one WBS column, I extracted that father of that task. For example, the task 1.12.1 would have one column for that task and one columns for the 1.12.

With this I used the PATH function, an then I created a calculated column in the original task table using CALCULATE (Sum(Advance)/Sum(Duration), FILTER (PATHCONTAINS (RELATED(Path)),WBS)), FILTER (SUMMARY <> TRUE()))
So in this case, I could find every task that has in its Path, the task I'm calculating.

Hi @onodus

Based on my understanding,

1. in task 2 all those No Summary Task belongs to 2   1  as a child.

2. result=(Duration * Percent Complete)/Duration.

for example

Duration=Duration of Task order1+2+3+4

Percent Complete=Percent Complete of Task order1+2+3+4

Right?
