Default Changing units in resource work visual report

I need to produce resource visual reports in Project 2013, which is simple enough, however the vertical scale is always in man hours, whereas I need it in man days.
Can I set the report up to give me days? Currently I set the hours axis to hours/wk (usually default), then print as a pdf and edit t give me a day count. This takes to long and every time there is a change, I need to repeat the whole process.



thanks

I don't have 2013 handy to check so I haven't tested - but does changing the work to "days" in File > Options, schedule work?

Dang it, meant 2010, NOT 2013. I have no idea at all how I mistyped that one... sorry!

Not to worry. I have tested changing the setting and it does not having any effect on the Visual Report. The report shows everything in hours.

Yeah, its a bit annoying that it wont change over.
Can mark this as a solved as we have resorted to a workaround- the client has been given resource graphs for each labour group, which DO show labour in days. Given that this covers the contract requirements, fairly confident that this will work out.

the original programme was written in Primavera P6 (which I am learnig to loathe day by day) and after trying to produce reports in that I resorted to converting to Project and extracting info from there. At least Project will let you do that easily
