Formula %predicted by date and %Conclusion

Good afternoon.

I have a question about the percentage during the project, because my% predicted on the date and my% Complete, does not hit when they are the same.

    I think your formula aide is hiding part of the answer.

    There are a couple of different factors at play here.

    1. [% Complete] children are entered manually. Unless your manual entries match the predicted, they will diverge.

    2. If you check rows that are supposed to finish today, since you use greater than instead of greater than or equal to, you may get odd results because the End Date for today is (probably) at the end of the work day, which may or may not line up with the value returned by TODAY()

    3. [% Complete] roll up is based on the sum of the individual durations and your prediction is based on the start and end dates. If there are any gaps or overlaps, the two numbers will diverge.

    There's more, but should get you started.
