Update the percentage that a task is complete

Indicating the percentage that a task (task: An activity that has a beginning and an end. Project plans are made up of tasks.) is complete helps you track actual progress. By specifying a percentage of completion (percent work complete: A percentage value that indicates the current status of a task, resource, or assignment, expressed as the percentage of work that has been completed.) between 0 (for a task that hasn't started) and 100 (for a task that is finished), you can compare planned progress to actual progress.

  4. In the % Comp. (Percent Complete) field, type the percentage of completion for the tasks you want to update.

The recalculated values for actual duration and remaining duration appear in the Act. Dur. (Actual Duration) and Rem. Dur. (Remaining Duration) fields.
