    Hi all.

    I'm just starting with MS Project, and am encountering an issue with costs. I have created a task and assigned one of my resources to the task. The resource will only commit a certain percentage of his time to the task. In my case, the duration of the task is 4 days, while the resource will only commit 2 hours to it. The percentage is then 2/96 = 2.08333%. But Project rounds that to 2%, resulting in a large (~25%) error in the calculated cost. Is there a way to carry this out more accurately?


    Thanks in advance.
