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.

The predecessor completion date and successor start date are the same. For Example, if predecessor finishes on 04th Feb-18, 04:00 PM the successor start on 04th Feb-18, 04:00 PM instead of 05th Feb-18, 08:00 AM with 0 days lag. Kindly Help me to figure out this issue.  Regards Zahid MajeedPlanning Engineerzahidmajed@hotmail.com
