I'm using Project 2010 with a project base calendar that has been loaded with exceptions for company holidays. However, when I add tasks to it and resource load them, it is ignoring the base calendar and spreading hours against a holiday exception as a working day in the Gantt.

This problem is fixed if I assign the project base calendar to either the task or the resource but by default shouldn't Project use the base calendar for all tasks and resources when a specific calendar is NOT assigned to that task or resource?

It sounds like you haven't given your resources the same calendar. Are they still using "Standard" whilst you have put the company holidays into a base calendar of its own?

If this is the case, resource availability in terms of generic company-wide holidays will be calculated from the "Standard" base calendar whilst the project will be working with its own base calendar.

When you set up a base calendar for a project, which you should always do, you should do it first and then whenever you add a resource to the project, make sure each one is also using the same base calendar.
