How Microsoft Project Calculates Durations in Days

Microsoft Project effectively records task durations in hours and the value of the duration in days is calculated using the parameter entered in the Hours per day: field in the File, Options, Schedule tab, Calendar options for this project: section.

It is VERY IMPORTANT that all users understand that the durations in days are calculated using ONLY the one parameter and this parameter is used with EVERY calendar. This makes Microsoft Project difficult to use when calendars with a different number of hours per day are being used.
