There are plenty of ways to update the project. The simpliest method is by using percent complete type = duration. But, take note to check "Recalculate Actual Units and Cost when duration % complete changes" on calculation tab. This way, the % complete of units together with the duration %. The "Duration Type" & "Earned value calculation" affects on how P6 calculate the progress. You can now use "Labor Units % Complete" in your reporting. Before you understand this things, you must fully understand what is "Actual" & what is "Earned Value". Read the Help file as well.
