  • Have you tried typing NA into the Status Date?

    That’s the solution. typing 'NA' or 'na' will take the status date back to Current day date!


    so this way, status date can be reverted to standard.

  • I believe that's actually a bug.  Although the status date appears with today's date on the ribbon, it's actually NA in the Project Information dialog box.  What's displayed on the ribbon is misleading.  FWIW, it's been fixed to appear NA in Project 2013, I believe.

  • Since Project 2003, the logic is if Status Date is empty (NA), assumes Current Date, otherwise assumes Status Date, but there is an issue when you use Current Date instead Status Date.

    Current Date always considers the start of the day, while the Status Date considers the end of the day. So there is more or less a lag of one day between the dates.

    If you need to use it in a formula you can control to add one day when necessary.
