My cost totals are incorrect.
If the expected amount of a task's total cost (total cost: The calculated cost of a project, task, resource, or assignment over the life of the project.) differs from the calculated sum of its various rate-based (rate-based cost: Costs that are based on a rate that you enter in the Costs tab of the Resource Information dialog box.), per-use (per-use cost: A set fee for the use of a resource that can be in place of, or in addition to, a variable. For work resources, a per-use cost accrues each time that the resource is used. For material resources, a per-use cost is accrued only once.), and fixed costs (fixed cost: A set cost for a task that remains constant regardless of the task duration or the work performed by a resource.), do the following:
A different cost rate table (cost rate table: A collection of information about a resource's rates, including the standard rate, overtime rate, any per-use cost, and the date when the pay rate takes effect. You can establish up to five different cost rate tables for each resource.) may be applied. Correct this problem by changing the cost rate tables on a resource assignment.
A rate change you specified in the cost rate table may have gone into effect.
- Check task cost totals. Tasks may have a fixed cost you forgot about.
My cost totals changed unexpectedly.
My resource assignment cost shows a zero value.
My costs don't accrue as set by default.
The overtime rates are not incorporated in cost totals.
I can't enter actual costs into my project.
