Display Task Duration in Reports RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Is there a way to see what logic the project Server 2010 client displays duration and mimic that in a report that pulls data from the Reporting Database? The client will show the task duration in days, months and sometimes hours.

    I understand the TaskDuration field in the Reporting Database MSP_EpmTask_UserView displays the value in hours. I want to convert that to display it in the same format as the client does, whether it is hours, days or months so that end users of the report see the same numbers.

    Any help is appreciated!
