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.

I am creating a project schedule with SureTrak,
The following is the issue,
Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

I want to count weekdays and weekends.
For one item, I put in Start_Date 01/28/03 and 62 days to complete.
End_Date is suppose to be 03/31/03, but SureTrak is giving me
End_Date as 04/23/2003. Is there any way I can count all days,
both weekdays and weekends, and put in End_Date as 03/31/03
on the screen, as calculated.

While checking your question in suretrack I found the following :

1) Check the exceptions option in the calendar, it could contain dates!
2) The global calendar has effect on using calendar no. 1. Make this global calendar "empty" ie 7days/week and define exceptions in the others 1,2,3,4 etc calendars. Only days applicable for ALL calendars should remain in the global calendar.

I hope this solves your problem.

Plan for the best,

Check your calender, if Sat/Sun are classed as non working, either change them to working days, or create a new calender with the working days you require.

Same goes for holiday days.

have fun
