If you set a task to 100% complete and then change the duration of the task, the percent complete will be distributed over the initial duration of the task rather than the new duration of the task.


Once you set a task to 100% complete, Microsoft Project will no longer perform calculations on it. The percent complete is calculated for the duration of the task at the time when it reaches 100%.


To recalculate the task, change the percent complete to a value other than 100%, such as 0% or 99%, and then change the percent complete back to 100%. The value should be calculated correctly.
