I would like to have your confirmation about the following facts and whether are right or not

In a project with Calculation method= duration

We have a summary task with only daughter task which is a milestone
we put the milestone at 100% (completed)
we run the job update % complete
but the summary task will never be completed due the milestone duration is 0 and the formula is only based in mathematics

Summary Task % Complete = Total Detail Task Duration Complete / Total Detail
Task Duration

Is my understanding right or there is any way to force that?

Same summary task will be displayed as a milestone and at 100% complete, I suppose they use a different formula.

Which approach do you think is better to manage projects?
