- Microsoft Project 98 Standard Edition
This article was previously published under Q173178
When you open a file created in an earlier version of Microsoft Project, the units of measurement used for a task change to match the units of measurement used for the duration of the task. For example, in Microsoft Project 4.1, if you set the duration to 24 hours (24h) and the delay to 3 elapsed days (3ed), the leveling delay will change to 72 elapsed hours (72eh) when you open the file in Microsoft Project 98.
To work around this problem, use either of the following methods:
- After you open the file in Microsoft Project 98, change the delay value to the value you want.
- In Microsoft Project 4.1, change the delay value to match the unit of measurement used by the duration.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of Microsoft Project listed above.
