MS Project Task Rollup Hours

Post by jstevens »

I am having a challenge with task rollups not calculating the duration in hours. I have changed the project's default schedule of "Duration and Work is entered in" from days to hours. I can enter hours for each task for the parent or rollup task does not compute the rollup of hours correctly.

In the example below the rollup of hours totals .5 hours it should be 1 hour.

Code: Select all

Task 2 Parent      .5 hrs
    Prepare this   .5 hrs
    Do that        .5 hrs
Your suggestions are appreciated.
Regards,
John
