    How can we find the Projected Forecast Completion date for any task? I was under the impression that Planned Finish & Projected Forecast are the same. It seems they are not. In the following example (Status date is 15th Jan 2015), all the tasks are not 100% completed & the Planned Finish dates are past dates! To be specific, how can I find the Projected Forecast Completion date for the tasks in the below screenshot?

    Task Name Duration Baseline Start Baseline Finish Start Finish Actual Start Actual Finish % Complete Predecessors
    Tasks 5 days NA NA Tue 11/25/14 Mon 12/1/14 Tue 11/25/14 NA 30%
    Task A 5 days NA NA Tue 11/25/14 Mon 12/1/14 Tue 11/25/14 NA 30% 8266
    Task B 5 days NA NA Tue 11/25/14 Mon 12/1/14 Tue 11/25/14 NA 30% 8266
    Task C 5 days NA NA Tue 11/25/14 Mon 12/1/14 Tue 11/25/14 NA 30% 8266
    Task D 5 days NA NA Tue 11/25/14 Mon 12/1/14 Tue 11/25/14 NA 30% 8266
    Task E 5 days NA NA Tue 11/25/14 Mon 12/1/14 Tue 11/25/14 NA 30% 8266
    Task F 5 days NA NA Tue 11/25/14 Mon 12/1/14 Tue 11/25/14 NA 30% 8266

    Hi Dan – I don’t know what you meant by Planned Finish – is it Baseline Finish or Finish column but anyway I would state Planned Finish = Projected Finish = Finish column.

    Project does not move the uncompleted work in the past to the future date and hence your Finish is incorrect. To reschedule the uncompleted work to be moved on or after 15th Jan, choose Project tab and click Update Project command. Select the second radio button “Reschedule uncompleted work …”, choose the date as 15 Jan, and set For “Entire Project”. This action will move the remaining work on or after Status Date and there by the Start and Finish date will be recalculated

    Hope this helps
