    24 HR Calendar? (200-2002)

    Is there a way that you can use the 24 hour calendar and be able to have two shifts (i.e. 7am-7pm, and a 7pm-7am). If so can someone please enlighten me. I can do a am shift with no issue but as soon as I try to make the pm to am shift happen it gives me an error. And therefore the frastration begins.

    WDD:

    Welcome to the lounge!

    I have Project 2000. The way to do what you want is to set up two calanders:

    Shift 1 - Start 07:00 - End 19:00 (Assuming no 'lunch' breaks.)

    Shift 2 - Start 19:00 - End 0:00 and Start 0:00 - End 07:00 (Same assumption.)

    You can't have a time band ending 'earlier' than the start time, hence the break at midnight. Have a look at the built-in Night Shift calander for guidance.

    Hope this helps.

    Tony.

    be careful with this "shift 2" proposal: you must put the half starting at 0:00 in the first line, and have the "first" part of the shift starting 19:00 in a later line, or you will get an error message!
    btw: the result may be that a job will start on midnight .... if that day is a start date without any time entered. Does anyone know a way around that?

    Klaus:

    You can enter date & time in any date box, in the format (for UK):

    dd/mm/yy hh:mm

    Note the space between the year and the hours.

    HTH, Tony.
