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.

When in Activity View, select the Activity Details at the bottom of the screen, in the General Tab, check that the % Complete Type is set to Physical not Duration.

You may need to check for all activities - you can do this by adding the % Complete Type  column to the activity view, changing one, select the ones you wish to change and then right-click and select "Fill Down"
