    I’m having difficulty understanding the nuances of the CompleteThrough, %Complete and SummaryProgress representation of progress on Summary task bars.

    What is CompleteThrough showing? For purely sequential tasks it seems to align with rolled up %Complete. With complicated schedules with many parallel and overlapping tasks it is vastly different then %Complete. What is it illustrating?

    I thought I was getting a good handle on things when I discovered SummaryProgress value. It is also different then %Complete. What is special about what it shows?

     

    I’ve searched the web and Microsoft FAQs. I’ve searched my MS Project books. I can’t find an explanation what these display presentations indicate nor when one dispaly is preferred over the other displays.

    Can someone explain the 3 and when to use them and when not to use them?

    Thanks for that link. It is much more informative than other descriptions I’ve found.

    % Complete and SummaryProgress,

    You’re welcome. Unfortunately, the article does not provide detailed information on how Project calculates Summary Progress value.
