is saved in the database are different. This issue may occur when you replace
an existing value with a reduced value.

over a cell on the My Tasks page. This page contains duration or work. Then,
you format a Web part to show these values in days. In this scenario, the
values are shown in hours.

units. This behavior occurs even when the actual work is formatted to display
in daily units.

in the last week of a period.
An incorrect currency symbol is displayed for the
