Project Pro 2010 Units calculation working incorrectly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running Project Professional 2010(SP1) and for Fixed Duration task type, I entered the Duration, then entered the Resource, then entered the Hours and was expecting it to calculate the Units for me. In Project 2007, it would calculate the Units. (Example, 3 Days Duration, 12 Hours of work, was expecting 50% Units). In this case, Project 2010 calculated 100% Units and changed the Work to 24 Hours. For grins, I changed the Work back to 12 hours, however the Units stayed at 100%. Interestingly enough, I checked Task Usage and the allocation per day was 4 Hours which was correct, just Units are wrong.

    Any ideas or am I doing the entry wrong?

  • This is a change in Project 2010. There is now a new field - Peak Units - which will show changed unit values when you change the work or duration.

  • Thanks for the reply, and found a additional detail about this in Microsoft Project 2010 for Project Managers by Dale Howard & Gary Chefetz.
