Print Preview Doesnt Match Schedule RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to print task usage and resource usage however when I check print preview the data is being shifted by two weeks.  For example, I have a task that is broken up as follows:

    September 1, 2013 - 114.4h

    September 8, 2013 - 88h

    When I print, the data is shifted two weeks as follows:

    August 18, 2013 - 114.4h

    August 25, 2013 - 88h

  • dcp6040,

    What version of Project are you using? Is it updated with the latest service pack?

    When you say the print preview shows the task shifted by two weeks, is the actual task being shifted or simply that the view is scrolled over by two weeks?

    In your example you list a date and hours. Is that the start date, finish date or what? What are the hours duration, work, or something else?

  • I've run into a similar issue before and found out that some of my print setting were messing with the print preview.  You may want to check them by going to FILE > PRINT  then select the Page Setup link.  You can  adjust settings like the "Print first X columns on all pages" or "Fit timescale to end of page".  Unfortunately, I can't remember which one was the culprit.   Hope is helps.
