Non-working days disappear from the calendar RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have set up a general template to be used with new projects and this is based on a calendar which includes the UK bank holidays up to 2030.  However, non-working time keeps "disappearing" from the calendar - sometimes its Easter, sometimes the May Bank holidays, etc.  There does not seem to be a pattern.  A colleague has also noticed the same problem with some of her live projects. 

    I have printed reports to prove that I have set up all the bank holidays correctly however when I access the template (which only I can currently edit as it is stored locally) a couple of days later, some days will have disappeared.

    Is it because we are setting too many exceptions?  Is this a known bug?  Is there a way to fix this?

  • Hi,

    Which version and SP are you working with? Maybe 2030 is a bit too far, you should do it only if you are planning projects until this date.

    Following this link, PS2013 SP1 increases the number of exceptions allowed in a calendar.

    Note that you can use recurring exceptions in your calendar to limit the number of exceptions. See this post on my blog.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for replying.

    We are using MS Project Standard 2010, Version 14.0.7128.5000 (32 bit) SP2.  I have used recurring exceptions as the only "variable" non-working days are Good Friday and Easter Monday.  Whilst we aren't planning projects into the next 16 years, our projects do extend for 4 or 5 years.  Is there a recommended limit to how far our exceptions should be planned?

    Regards,

    Margaret
