This might be incredibly simple but I can't seem to find it already answered!

Sometimes when I set a Finish to Start predecessor, the auto-filled "Start Date" is the same date as the predecessor row instead of the following business day. This seems to happen only about half the time. I've attached an example of me having to add in a Lag Day to correct the Start Date. Anyone have an idea as to why this occurs?
