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.

that depends on how you have your critical path defined it can be zero days total float or longest path

if you have it set to zero days. If you do not set a project must finish by date then the late dates will match the early dates and the float will ALWAYS be zero
