Display Work in 'hours' and 'days' RRS feed

  • Hi There,

    I have a column in my MS Project doc that is showing work in hours.  Is there a way that I can also have a column that shows the work in days?

    You can achieve this by using below steps.

    1) Open the Project Plan.

    3) For setting 'Work is Entered in" select "Days"

    4) click on OK

    Thank you,

  • Insert Duration1 column to the table and enter [Work] as the formula. It will show the work amount in days if the current duration unit setting is "days". You can rename the column header for Duration1, for example, to <Work in Days>. Select the "Use formula" option for the summary tasks in the Custom Fields dialog box if you want to do the same for the summary lines. Hope this works.
