MSP seems to change duration and units at random RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    After altering Work of all fixed work tasks, it seems MS Project is changing or the Units or the Duration. Why is this? Is it because there was once entered a duration, so it remembers it and changes the units instead? Off course I want a task to finish as soon as possible and I want MSP to change the duration when I change Work, and not change Units.

  • Hi,

    sorry, that is just how it works.

    • Change work for fixed work - behaves like fixed units
    • Change duration for fixed duration - behaves like fixed units
    • Change units for fixed units - behaves like fixed duration

    When changing the value you "fixed", system needs to use another "rule".
