Picture of problem

I calculated the span based on my start and finish dates to double check the file.

Why are these two columns not equal? Is there a setting wrong somewhere? Does this mean my end date isn't being accurately calculated?

1 Answer 1


The calculated span does not include the time between 3/22/05 5:00 PM and 3/23/05 8:00 AM which would be exactly 62 weeks after the task started (1/14/04 8:00 AM).

Note: MS Project has been around for a long, long time; it calculates the dates correctly.
