    Project Start Times NOT Adjusting (2003)

    Hi,
    I have a project and when I change the calendar and the default times in tools/options/calendar. the new tasks that i type still have the default time of 8:00am. the only way i can get the new tasks to use the new time, let's say 7am, is to go to Project/Proj Inf. and change the start time in the start date box. I don't remember having this problem in 2000 version of project. is this something new with 03. It seems extra work to me. Where I create a calendar, apply it to the project, change the default settings and still have to go into the project information area and change it there as well. As far as i can tell, i don't think i have any service packs installed.
    thanks,
    Deb

    Changing the default options will only change future objects that you create not already created objects. It might be easier to either recreate the calendar using the new defauts or to go to the Change Working Time dialog box and change the start times by selecting the entire month and redefining the start times. You would have to do this for every month you want to use, probably better than doing this by task. If you are redefining the start times and you are deviating from the 8 hour default hours in a day you would have to adjust the hours per day, hours per week in tools options to synchronize with what you are defining in your base calendar, otherwise Project will be calculating your start and finish dates based on an 8 hour day.
