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.

Check the Schedule Table to see the ES, EF, LS, LF, free slack and total slack.

Run the Gantt Chart Wizard to format Critical Tasks red.

Check Tools, Options, calculation to see that Critical is defined as zero total slack.
