SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Project, when you create a Start To Finish task dependency, the Finish date and time for the successor task is the same as the Start date and time for the predecessor task.

For example, Microsoft Project sets the successor task set to finish at 8:00 AM (the day that the predecessor task starts), but you expect it to finish at 5:00 PM (the day before).

CAUSE

This behavior occurs because of the Start to Finish task dependency. The Finish date and time of the successor is set to be the same as the Start date and time of the predecessor.

STATUS

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