3. Click on the "Project" link. Click on "Actions" tab. Click on "New"

 c. Type = "Job"
 d. Select Job = "Update Earned Value and Cost Totals"
 c. Alert users before running the jobs = "No"
 d. Scope = "Instance-Specific"
 e. Attribute Mapping:
  i. Investment:
   "Default Values" = Select any investment
   "Object Attribute Overrides" = "Object Internal ID"
  ii. For all other parameters, change "Object Attribute Overrides" to "[--Select--]"
5. Save and Return
6. Click on "Views"
7. Click on "[Actions Menu]" against View = "Project Properties". Click on "General". Move Action created in Step 4 from "Available Actions" to "Selected Actions"
