Remaining cost is not calculated for a Cost Resource assignment in MS Project 2010 and later versions RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a task with 4 day duration. Added a cost resource with no cost initially set.

    Then, I choose 'show split' and cost then typed the following values for the assignment and pressed enter

    Cost 400, Actual Cost 100.

    I was expecting remaining cost to be calculated to 300, instead the cost got changed to 100. (It is working fine if I press enter immediately after entering cost and before entering the actual cost).

    It is working as expected in MS Project 2007.

    Again, I tried entering the below values for the same assignment.

    Cost 400, Actual 50.

    Now it has calculated the remaining cost: 350 and kept the cost same:400.

    Actually, we are hitting this issue in a VSTO addin for MS Project 2010/2013, where it imports task and assignments data from external application. Same code is working fine in MS Project 2007.

    project.Resources.Add()

    .............................................

    asmt.Cost = cost;
    asmt.ActualCost = actCost;

    Is this a bug in MS Project or am I missing anything?

    Thanks,
