How do I change Durations in a converted MPX schedule from Hours to Days in Project 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I received a .MPX Microsoft project schedule. When I opened and converted it in Project 2010 the durations are in Hours and not days.    I have tried to change the settings in [Options] [Schedule], but it only changes the summary lines to days. How do I change all the lines to days

  • Hello SLR10

    The lines will need to be changed by hand or macro.   For example, if it show 8 hour, then you will need to enter 1 day.

    The values are not control by a parameter.   For example, if you create a new project  and enter task a and b.  1 day for task a and 8 hrs for task be, it keeps it that way on the schedule.
