    Time Duration (MSP 2000)

    Hi,

    I have a resource, consultant 1, who will be 50% on actual tasks. The remaining 50% will be incidental assignments during the time period. To enter this incidental assignments task and have the hours span the phase, I need to be able to calculate the number of work hours between the start and finish dates. Do you know whether Microsoft Project provides a way to do this?

    Any help in this regard will be appreciated

    Regards

    You could go to the Resource Sheet View, then display the Summary table. The Work colum displays the total scheduled work per resource for the project. If you want a specific date range use the Date Range... filter.
    If you are looking for actual work display the actual work field in the Summary table. If this does not give you the information you want to see post back additional specifics.

    Maybe I don't understand what you are doing, but why not assign the consultant to 50% of available work on the actual tasks and the other 50% spanning the other tasks that the consultant will work on? If the calendars are setup correctly, then project will span the correct hours for you.

    While I agree with the other 2 folks posting their ideas, I realize there is usually more than one way to skin a cat in most task functions you wish to do in Project. If you are just looking for a way to see how many hours are available in a particular time frame, using a certain calendar, set up a task and make sure you are using the right calendar. If the resource you are using has an individual calendar, Project will use that when you assign the resource. I have provided a sample of how I would do it to just calculate the hours. Set the duration to cover the time frame and assign the resource at 100%. If you are using the resource at 50%, put that in to see how many hours of work that would provide. Hope it helps. These folks have sure put me on the right path more than a few times...
