Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi

I’m using Powerproject 9. I have formatted the Bar Chart so that Saturday and Sunday are displayed with the ’weekend’ green shading and tasks are, by default, not scheduled to be worked on during these 2 days.

It’s all fine except that at the end of each half day there is a thick vertical green. This can be confusing as it intially appears that there are 4 ’non-working/weekend’ days blocked out. Is there any way you can stop that vertical line appearing at the end of the half day, without having to adjust the working time settings.

Thanks, Laurie

Alexandre thanks for your reply. In the end the customer decided they like the bars, so I didn’t have a chance to try out your suggestion.

But thank you for your help.

Laurie,
I am using PP8; I would check Work Pattern in the Library: The saturdays and sundays your wp should be set-up as follows in the 8hr/day, 5d/w pattern:
Non-working: 00:00 - 09:00 (or 08:00)
Week-end: 08:00 (or 09:00) - 17:00
Non-working: 17:00 - 00:00
and as follows in the 8hr/day, 7d/w pattern:
Non-working: 00:00 - 09:00 (or 08:00)
Working: 08:00 (or 09:00) - 12:00
Non-working: 12:00 - 13:00
Working: 13:00 - 17:00
Non-working: 17:00 - 00:00
I presume the wrong display comes from there.
Hope this helps
Alexandre
