Symptoms
In Microsoft Project, when you open a project that contains an insertedproject, you may see that the details in the timescale of either theResource Usage view or the Task Usage view displays incorrect values or ismissing information.
Cause
This behavior occurs when you open a project that contains an insertedproject, and the inserted project's tasks are hidden.

Details of Cost, Work, and Earned Value type fields for the insertedproject are not saved in the consolidated file. When you open theconsolidated file, the inserted project is not expanded, and the detailsfrom the inserted project are neither displayed nor included in anycalculations for summary tasks that contain the inserted project.
Workaround
To show the details information for the inserted project in the Task orResource 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.
Status
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of MicrosoftProject listed above.
