In Microsoft Project, when you open a project that contains an inserted project, you may see that the details in the timescale of either the Resource Usage view or the Task Usage view displays incorrect values or is missing information.


This behavior occurs when you open a project that contains an inserted project, and the inserted project's tasks are hidden.

Details of Cost, Work, and Earned Value type fields for the inserted project are not saved in the consolidated file. When you open the consolidated file, the inserted project is not expanded, and the details from the inserted project are neither displayed nor included in any calculations for summary tasks that contain the inserted project.


To show the details information for the inserted project in the Task or Resource Usage view, expand the inserted project. On the View tab, click Outline, and click All Subtasks. In Project 2007 and earlier versions, point to Outline on the Project menu, and then click Show All Subtasks.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of Microsoft Project listed above.
