    Calculated field? (Project 2000)

    My question concerns resources. I have assigned an inspector as 25% for the overall project. The 25% should be taken from the overalll manhours exerted by all other resources. However, when I total up all manhours and multiply by 25%, the numbers don't match up with what Project calculates. If I change it, it automatically changes the units to near double what I figured it should be. Is there something that Project is taking into consideration that I am not aware of. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    If you assign someone as 25%, I am assuming you assigned a person to a task and put .25 as the units, then you are assigning the person as being available for 25% of the work scheduled for the day. (2 hours if a day has 8 hours)

    Is this how your resource was assigned? If so, it has nothing to do with the total resource hours on the project.
