Why is a scheduled 10 hour day overlap into the next day?

I have started a new project and have imported my WBS from excell, set my 
project start date, set my calender to a 10 hrs day seven days / week, 
outlined my phases, and am ready to schedule. The problem is that my 10 hour 
day is overlapping into the next day. I have had this problem in the past and 
cannot figure out why sometimes it happens and others it will behave like I 
expect. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Could you address more specifically where you set your calendar?

If you did it in Tools > Options > Calendar, then that is only partially 
the answer.  You also have to go into Tools > Change Working Time, and modify 
the calendars there (or create new ones based on the 10 hour schedule) - 
then confirm your resources are on the same calendar.

You also might go into Tools > Options and change the Date display format 
to include the time.  That may help you assess if you have specific tasks 
starting midway through the day.

Let's say your 10 hour day is 6am to 5pm with and hour for lunch.  If your 
1-day task starts at 6am it will finish at 5pm on the same day.  But if you 
task starts later in the day, it will have to run over into the next day in 
order to be 10 hours in length.  How could it start later in the day?  Go to 
the View menu and enable a date format that includes the time.  Then look at 
the Project Start Date.  If it shows a time later than the start of your 
workday, all your tasks will be offset by the difference.  Remember that ALL 
date fields are actually date/TIME fields and time is always a part of the 
data even when it's not being displayed.  A task never simply starts on 
Monday; it always starts at a precise TIME on Monday and finishes at 
start+duration time later.

adding hours and minutes ignoring seconds

Task w/ Multiple Resource
I have a task that requires two resources to work concurrently. It is a series of presentations that need to occur within a single span of five days.

It so happens that one of the resources that must perform the task is away on vacation when the predecessor finishes. Even though the vacation is entered as an exception in the calendar of the resource, MS Project still schedules the pr...

SendTo PDF Not Working on GP 10

The users can see the PDF being created but a blank email doesn't open from their email client as it used to. The client is on version 10.00.0991 and I thought this issue was to be resolved in 10.0 SP 1 but obviously it hasn't been for us. The client is also using Outlook.

day of the week and date formula
Hello I am looking to write a formula that gives me the difference in hours between a logged date and time and a closed date and time eg -27/11/2009 09:23:26 and 30/11/2009 10:34:20. Once I have this I need to calculate the working hours used to resolve the issue. If the duration of the time includes a weekend, a saturday would equate to 4 hours working and a sunday would be 0 hours working time, a week day equates to 11.5 hours working. Any suggestions??

Scheduling Resources for meetings
Does exchange/outlook provide a way to automatically reserve resources when someone schedules a meeting on his/her calendar or on a public calendar?

It'd be nice if, for example, when I put a meeting on my calendar and say it'll be in the main conference room, exchange/outlook will warn me that someone has already booked that room at that time.
