Default Question regarding filter:marked as late

I have a strange thing in the filtered view of tasks when I apply the filter Late tasks.

One summary task is marked as late as seen in one of the screen shots attached.

The task that creates this "late date", is a milestone marked as 100% complete in the project.

The only thing I can see that could be the cause of this is the constraint task-20 days, but I do find it strange that it should create a late warning since its complete?

Hey Tony and thanks for that link. Not really sure it is answering my question though since as I understood the info was illustrating ongoing tasks with a later completion date.
In my case a milestone, set as 100% complete still creates a late warning of the summary task it resides within.
The other tasks within the same summary task is not due to start in another 20 work days.
Attached is a SS with the column Status added just to illustrate that there are not any planned work going on.

As a suggestion add the status field to the table to see what is going on. The completed task should have a status of "completed" not late.

Sorry for the strange language in my screenshots Julie, the word "Färdigt" in the column Status is translated to "Completed".

The strange thing is that the summary task is flagged as Late (Sen) with no task inside it being late.

Do you have a gap in the subtasks? So, for example, you have tasks that are complete and then a gap with tasks in the future? Still not sure why things are incorrect. Are there any tasks with incomplete work in the past? Add the status line to the Gantt chart - is everything to the left marked complete and any remaining work moved to the right of the status line?

Yes, there is a gap created by a -20 days predecessor between task #3 and task #4. The completed task (#3) is in the past and the next task (#4) is in the future.
The thing that creates the strangeness for me is the fact that nothing within the summary task is late and yet the summary task is marked as late...

I think you may have just run into a anomoly with summary tasks that span a fair amount of "empty" space. Because there are no subtasks progressing the % complete of the summary task is skewed. Just for fun - mark task 4 1% complete - does that fix it?
