    Finish dates don't jive (2003)

    Can anyone tell me why the finish date of the Project Summary Task might be earlier than one of the project tasks? It seems to me it shouldn't be possible.

    Bryan,

    This could happen if you are looking at the Baseline Finish Dates and someone updated a part of the baseline. Is the finish date you are referring to the Planned Finish, Baseline Finish, or Actual Finish? Text field?

    Also - any chance you have a task inserted from another project?
    Regards,

    Oh you'll just love this. I'm just looking at the project summary task finish date, but somehow it was just displaying day/month and it's going to 2005! 80 hour weeks does this to one I guess. Thanks again.

    ... it happens to all of us. Hopefully, you can lessen your workload to less then 80 hours per week. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Have a great weekend.

    But it is QUALITY not QUANTITY that counts![thumbsup]

    Thanks Catherine. However, that assumes that the quantity of my posts do contain some quality - which is not always the case.


    ... unless of course you are a stack of money, then I will take quantity over quality. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
