This happens when the summary task’s duration is computed using a calendar that contains no working time between the start and finish dates that roll up from the subtasks. E.g. a summary task covering one shift of overnight (6-to-6) work will have zero duration according to the Standard (8-to-5) calendar. For 2- or 3-shift operation, you may want to use a 24-hour project calendar – along with the necessary adjustments – that would get inherited by the summary tasks. Alternately, you could apply 24-hour task calendars only to specific summary tasks. There is always some confustion to work through when mixing calendars. Good luck, tom
