Can someone please let me know how can I specify a weekday as a holiday in MS Project so that that day is not considered while assigning timelines to resources.

I clicked on
Tools --> Change Working Time

In For Calender, "Standard (Project Calendar)" is selected by default.

Now I clicked on Oct 28th which, I want to mark as a holiday. But after that I get no option to mark this as a holiday.
Please let me know how to do this.

When you get the Standard Calendar on the screen there should be a series of three radio buttons on the right one should say Non-Working time. Choose that circle and the "standard" work hours should be cleared.

I am still on Project Pro 2003...so the screen is different. It looks like you might be able to enter the date as an exception. Can you try entering the name of the holiday and then entering start and finish dates/times in the grid at the bottom?
