In Microsoft Project, when you enter a new value in the Actual Cost field, this value may be added to the total cost.


This behavior occurs if the Actual costs are always calculated by Microsoft Project option is not selected. When this option is not selected, actual costs are added to the total cost. Microsoft Project uses the following formula to determine total cost:

Total Cost = (Remaining Work * Resource Costs) + Fixed Cost + Actual Cost

NOTE: To locate this option, click Options on the Tools menu, and then click the Calculation tab.

Additional query words: PRJ2002 PRJ2003 PRJ2007 prj2000 prj98 always calculate actual work total PRJ
