Microsoft Project Calculates 2 hours as .5 days and 4 hours as 1 day. Why?
Posted on 2012-04-11
I think my questions may be a simple ones. I am creating a project plan with MS project. I am a beginner with project as ive used other tools in the past.
I have 8 hours set as one day and 40 hours set as one week. I also have my project set to display my duration column as hours not days. With all of this I have several issues:
-Even though I want to see duration in hours only, some rows dont recalculate in hours. They are stuck in days. How do I fix?
-Some work hours roll up to durations that arent accurate. So not only is it not just pushing the hours into the duration column, it is also calulating 2 hours as .5 days for example.
Another question is, why do some of my hours have a ? next to it?
Finally, is there a way to have project take my start and end dates, then take a guess at assigning my project to the work days in between my start and end?
Thanks in advance
