Default Bar in the Gantt chart with the duration

Hello everyone,
This is a simple question.
Here is I want to do.
I want to have a task that has 2 month duration.
Let's say it starts from January 1st 2013.
I assume that the bar in the gantt chart will end in the end of February 2013. But, it ends on February 25th 2013.
I notice that it is because it uses 20 working day calendar.
It is possible to change the working days of the calender, but I think there is better solution.
How can I go around this issue (to have this bar extended until the end of february 2013) ?
Any advice will be appreciated.

It depends upon what you are trying to accomplish - if you don't intend to assign resources, you could use elapsed duration - for example 2emo in the duration field will give you 60 calendar days including non-working days.

The trouble is if you assign resources, they will be assigned for 24 hours per day for the elapsed day duration - so your work values will be wildly inflated.
