Lightbulb Reds, but there still availability????

Ok, I'm putting this here for posterity as I looked for answers, could't find any and finally found the answer by myself after much sweat!!!!

Let's say you are in the resource usage view and you are zoomed to quarterly. Then, for some quarters, you see red numbers but, curiously, on that quarter you do have some availability !?!?!?!

The answer is that RED does not mean that you ran out of availibility for the period you are zoomed to, BUT it means that there is a day somewhere in your period where you are overallocated. So you have to drilldown by zooming in to spot the culprit day !

CQFD

The overallocation flags in 2003 are controlled by the leveling settings. If you change the leveling to minute by minute you'll see red in many places you didn't see before. (I personally think leveling on less than day by day is unrealistic and in some circumstances I use week by week.)

Indeed, the default seems to be day by day.

I changed it to week by week, which works best for me!

Flagging as solved

Yes, the default in Project is always Day by Day. The good news is that if you change the leveling to Week by Week it "sticks" for all projects opened in that instance of Project. If however, someone else opens the project file and their settings are day by day you'll likely have some explaining to do.
