Text that is attached to Gantt bars can lose a letter if the attached text is cut off by the page boundary and it continues to the next page.

NOTE: The truncation also affects the timescale labels on the Gantt Chart, Resource Usage view, and Resource Graph.
To work around this problem, try either of the following:
  • Decrease the margin space on the left and right side of the page to allow more information to appear on a page.


  • Decrease the font size of the text that appears next to the Gantt bar.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
