  3. Hi,
    I am a new starter and faced a problem with changing the start day. I wanted to provide a schedule in P6, the actual date of the project is 30-October-2017, while when I launched the P6 it took the start date as 27-Nov-2017, I tried to change it to 30-October-2017, I failed to do so, need instruction.
