Gantt bar durations are a day short

Pulliing my hair out over this one. I have a 700+ line schedule and somehow 
I've not only managed to loose the full critical path but more annoyingly the 
gannt bars now show durations a day shorted than they are entered - the 
actual start/finish dates are okay (as are depenedncies bewteen tasks). I.e. 
a one day task has a barely perceptiple duration in the gantt dar and a two 
day tasks shows a 1 day duration. Where there is a depenency, the dependency 
is illustrated as if there it is fs+1d. I have zoomed right in to show only 
days and reset the gantt wizard I don't know how many times. Any more 
suggestions on whats up?

I am not entirely sure I follow, but has the project calendar been flipped 
to something other than what you had?  (Project > Project Information)

The next thing I would check is Tools > Options > Calendar to see if any 
of those options have changed.

No, the Project Calendar is Standard. I did have a few tasks that were not 
using the standard calendar but I've now decided to kick those into touch 
(and guess what .... my critical path is back). However I still have the 
problem with the gantt bars showing a day shorted than they should be. 

It's so frustrating that I've even tried amending the bar details to show 
Finish+1day as the end point. Alas, this does not seem to be supported. 

Having now gone back through my version history to see when it started and 
if there're any clues as to what changed at that point - I must admit it does 
look suspiciously like it has something to do with calendars since I was 
trying to set one up to undertake implementations between 1am and 4am. I 
don't think I sucessfully managed to change the working time for a new 
calendar, but suspect I may have buggered something up in the process of 
trying. 

However as far as I know, all resources and all tasks are still set to the 
standard 8 hour, 8-5 calendar.

Any ideas how to delete calendars that you don't want so I can eliminate the 
extraneous one I created as the source of the issue? Or indeed, how do you 
change working times on specific project calendars (every time I click 
Options from the change working time dialogue, I get the same "standard" 8-5 
settings (even on night shift and 24 hour calendars).

Another weird thing I've now found is that the illustrated gantt duration 
changes based on the Gantt zoom, thus a 1day (8am to 5pm) task shows:
- correct duration (8am -5pm) when zoom set to show bottom tier in 1 hour 
increments 
- duration (8am - 4pm) when zoom set to show bottom tier in 2 hour increments 
- duration (6am - 3pm) when zoom set to show bottom tier in 3 hour increments 
- duration (8am - 4pm) when zoom set to show bottom tier in 4 hour increments
- duration (6am - 12pm) when zoom set to show bottom tier in 6 hour increments
- duration (8am - 4pm) when zoom set to show bottom tier in 8 hour increments 
- but looks like 0.1d when zoom set to show bottom tier in 1 day increments 

Any ideas?

Quick idea to help debug: if you have not done already, does it help if 
you display the dates to also show you the start times (Menu: 
Tools/Options, Tab: View, "Date Format").  Doing this you might spot 
where you have unexpected dates (off by minutes which moves to a 
different day).

I deleted extraneous calendars - did'nt help.

Then tried to create a new calendar again and tried to change this calendars 
working time. Turns out (as I half suspected) the process I'm using actually 
changes the standard calendar working time (I set a 4 hr working day and all 
then all 8hr/1day tasks changed to 2 day duration (but still showed in gantt 
as if they were taking a fraction of a day).

I then reset working times back to standard settings. Lo and behlod the 
gantt durations now fixed. Checked back to the settings what I had in 
previous version. Wait for it... I'd had working time from 8pm - 5am (rather 
than 8am - 5pm) ...Doh!

So I'd still like to know how to edit the working times for a calendar other 
than the standard.

Hi Bazzington,

Welcome to this Microsoft Project newsgroup :)

To set up working times in 2003, have a look at my free series for =
beginners on Microsoft Project in the TechTrax ezine, particularly #12 =
on working patterns, at this site: http://tinyurl.com/2xbhc  or this: =
http://pubs.logicalexpressions.com/Pub0009/LPMFrame.asp?CMD=3DArticleSear=
ch&AUTH=3D23=20
(Perhaps you'd care to rate the article before leaving the site, :)  =
Thanks.)  For 2007, there has been a change: in the Change Working Time =
dialog, select the Work Weeks tab and then click the Details... button =
on the right.  Select one or more days and then amend the hours to what =
you want on the right.   My advice is not to changes the Standard =
calendar, but to Copy it and give the copy a new name - work with that =
new one.

FAQs, companion products and other useful Project information can be =
seen at this web address: <http://www.mvps.org/project/>

Hope this helps - please let us know how you get on :)

Mike,

Thanks very much. I have 2007 and managed to update working times for a new 
calendar as you describe. Have to say that it was pretty clunky interface 
though!

Now I just have to hope that if I use this new calendar for some tasks, that 
I still get to keep my critical path!

Cheers again.

Error bars won't display with named formula/range data
Hi all, I have a bit of a problem with Y error bars on a line chart. I'm tying to add custom error bars using a named formula but no error bars are displayed. If i use an array formula to display the values on a worksheet and select this range as the custom error bar then all is displayed fine. Also, if i use the named formula as a new series then all plots ok. The named formula is: =IssueCluster!DGH_Comparison-IssueCluster!DGH_Current It calculates the difference between the values in 2 cell ranges. Is this happening because the named formula is not evaluating itself? If so, is the...

How to convert day of a year

Ciritical path and gantt chart
Hello. I began using MSP today after learning few things about it and came across some problems. What exactly is critical path?

Also, when I create a recurring task with multiple subsections, why does the main body with the '+' sign present way more days than they should be? Is this related to working time?

No gripper for status bar?
When needed, my application shows a 2nd status bar at the bottom of the screen, just above the usual status bar. Unfortunately, the 2nd bar has a size-grip (gripper) at the righthand end, just like the usual status bar. The 2nd gripper is not operative, but it makes no sense to have it drawn there. Does anybody know how to dispense with the gripper? The documentation says: "You can specify the SBARS_SIZEGRIP style to include a sizing grip at the right end of the status bar." But in fact, when I look at CStatusBar::CreateEx(), the SBARS_SIZEGRIP style is given whether I lik...

Up/down Bars

I would like to know if it is possible to show the value of the up/down bar on the graph (in other words, show the value of the variance between the 2 lines)? Thx There are a couple options. One is to add another line series that has Y values midway between up and down, hide the series (no markers, no lines) and apply custom labels with values equal to the variance. Both of these utilities allow you to easily assign a range of cells to the data labels of a chart series: Rob Bovey's Char...
