  1. Dear All

    I have one query regarding the Microsoft Project.

    I have created a project plan, i have set the base line as well. now
    want to show the delay of each task.. how can i do that.

    Say one of my task started on March 19, 2010 and was supposed to finis
    on March 22, 2010.

    However, the task started on time but finished on March 30, 2010. so
    want to show the delay of 8 days in the project plan...

  2. A couple of options:

    1) Navigate to the Tracking Gantt (Views > Tracking Gantt)
    2) Expose either the Finish or Start Variance fields. Right click on a column
    header, select Insert Column, and pick from the drop down fields.

  3. Simplistically, you just show the project in say, the Tracking View, and
    for that task fill in the appropridate start/finish dates in the columns
    [Start Date] and [Finish Date].

    If the project schedule is modelled in Project correctly, e.g.
    subsequent tasks are not constratined to start or finish on specific
    dates (I hope you did not enter start and end dates and intead let
    Project compute the schedule?), and if that task which finish late is on
    the critical path, then Project will recompute the schedule and show the
    corresponding overall delay. If that task is not on the critical path,
    then you'll likely not see any change in computed finish date.
