Percent complete ?
by: leov6 comments


Whenever i want to fill in a number for percent complete to a task i have a problem.

I can't fill in a number for percent complete, but this does not happen to all tasks. Is anyone familiar to this problem?
Can anyone tell me why it doesn't happen to all tasks. Whenever i give, for exemple 75% complete, sometimes the gantt bar doesn't change and in another task it does change.

Please any help, suggestions?

Hi Leo,


That seems odd..... if you can send your project file and offending task number we can check it out.  You can send it to   There are a few things like Summary tasks will update % complete when the child task is updated..... and there is also different effort driven statuses that may be causing this but I would like to check it out to ensure there is not a bug.

A little time ago i send you the requested file. But i haven't heard since. I do believe you very busy but i am just curious if you do have a solution for me.

Hi - thank you for your interest and reply.  I was scrambling to get some updates entered for a schedule review today so I did not take careful notes on what I did to get things working.  It is possible that I had entered date fields that should have been left empty for auto-filling.  I will take more careful notes when I touch it next.  I did have problems removing "actual start date" and/or "actual end date" fields in some cases.  Learning what not to touch seems important.
