Hello Hammad,

Are you trying to assign overtime or record Actual Overtime?

Work = "Regular" + "Overtime".

In most circumstances, the standard views display the Work field, not the regular work field.

Hi JulieS

I am adding overtime work, not actual overtime work in the Resource Usage view. Regular work value comes from the calendar or?

Why and how is it affected by overtime work.. Ok if overtime work does affect regular work, why overtime work decreases regular work.. If regular work was 8 hours, then i add overtime work is 1 hour... regular work should remain the same, no?

Regular work is counted against the working calendar in the duration calculation. Overtime work is not.

If you want a total of 10 hours -- 8 regular and 2 overtime add the 10 hours in work and then put 2 in Overtime.
