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 Guys,

I prepared a cash flow report by customizing the planned & cummulative planned calue. The project activities start in March 2014 and the last activities fall in Feb 2016. Whereas the cash flow shows values only till Jan 2016. The corresponding value for Feb 2016 is zero since there are no activities starting in Feb 2016. I need the cost to be calculated based on the finishing date of the activity. 

Can somebody suggest how to fix it.

check your calendars and your resource calendars take a look at smaller increments for your time scale maybe in weeks or days in the view.

Also check your resource to see if drive activities dates by default is checked.

Under the resource check you default units/time it should not be 1 or 0
