I created a task in MS Project 2010 which starts on
14-Oct-2011 and has a duration of one day.
Project automatically sets the Finish Date to
17-Oct-2011 (because the 15th and 16th are weekend non-working days).
However my task will really finish on the same day i.e.
14-Oct-2011, but when I set the Finish Date to
14-Oct-2011 MS Project shows the task as having a duration of
0.88 days which is wrong:
Why is this and is there a way around it?
Had a fiddle around with the
Default start/end time values in
File -> Options -> Schedule page. I changed from
I then changed the project's Working Time (
Project -> Working Time)
[Default] working time for the week from:
Monday to Friday: 08:00 to 12:00 and 13:00 to 17:00
Monday to Friday: 09:00 to 17:00
I'm not sure why this works because the number of working hours (8) per working day hasn't actually changed.
