    You're asking a lot of questions on the basic operation of Project, with not a whole lot of feedback from you to those who answer. You are well advised to get some formal training (online or from a qualified Project consultant) as Project is not an intuitive application and has a steep learning curve.

    It's not possible to answer your current question without more information. Are all tasks auto-scheduled? Did you set a baseline? How are you entering work progress (I believe Dale gave you a detail process in another post)?

    A readable screen shot would be helpful.

    In Microsoft Project, remember this key concept:  Actuals always replace estimates.  For example, you plan for a resource to work 8 hours on a task on Tuesday.  The team member actually works on 6 hours on Tuesday.  In this situation, the Work value would originally be 8h on Tuesday.  After the team member enters their progress as 6h of Actual Work, this will change the Work value on Tuesday to 6h.

    If you want to be able to see that 8h was originally planned for the Work on Tuesday, you need to display the Baseline Work information.  Remember, Baseline Work captures the original amount of planned Work for each task, resource, and assignment.  Hope this helps.
