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 have to put 2 decimal points for total float and for some reason the summary is showing for example 130.10 days total float instead of 130.00. None of the activties within the group have the 0.10 float yet the summary reads 130.10. Does anyone know why?

1 of your activity’s is starting or finishing at ???.10 You need to find it and i assume that you have a few activity’s that have this + 000’10 time period. You need to find the top activity that has this time period and when corrected it will cascade down through your programme and correct them all.

Paul - none of the durations contain decimal points and the calendar is a standard 10 hour day, 6 day week. I am trying to figure it out??

Have you checked the calendar finish times or activity durations, something is probably not matching.
