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.

Hello, Powerproject fanatics

Maybe the answer to my question is so obvious, however I was not able to find it

I want to enter the task duration in days; therfore I key in "5" for a task whose duration in "5 working days"

When I enter the duration of tasks in the spreadsheet, Powerproject always converts these 5 "days" into 5 "weeks", and displayes the value "25d" in the duration column.

Having looked everywhere in the dlalog boxes and the Online help, I cannot find my way.

Who will help me?

Thank you,

Alexandre

Hello Ben

Thank you!

Shame on me, I should have found it by myself!

Hi Alexandre,

On the View ribbon, you can change the default snapping unit in the drop down list:

I just tested it and it is this field that controls what happens when you just tap "5" into the duration field on the spreadsheet.

Thanks,
