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.

In the screen shot below, i have applied 7 days work week for project duration activity, start miletone and finish milestone , for all other its 6 days work week calender. On the overall summary level original duration is '959 days' , even though activity project duration is of duration 1095 days. i want to show original duration for project as 1095 days.

Its a function of how P6 calculates durations for summary bands. If all tasks within a summary band use one calendar, then the summary band will also show duration using that calendar. If there are a mix of calendars, then the summary band will use the project default calendar. So you may want to swtich 5the project default calendar to the 7 day week calendar you are using for the summary activity.
