OWB Autoschedule - confused

[size=4]Hi everone:[

I seem to have a problem with autoschedule - prelime: I have made a 4 task plan from scratch. Each task is 10 days and task 1 is linked to task 2. Task 3 is linked to task 4. There are no resources allocated.


I have added a fixed duration column (to observe etc).

The top 2 tasks (task 1 and task 2) are fixed duration and the last 2 (task 3 and task 4) are effort based (done during design – but can chop-change retrospectively via column).

Whilst the top 2 tasks remain intact (duration) on autoschedule as expected, the bottom 2 tasks follow an unknown/unusual calculation-algorithm:

I may expect a task to shrink (if effort based) as no resources are currently assigned (but on autschedule task 3 reduces from 10 to 1 day), but why does task 4 not also reduce? This stays at 10 days!

Any ideas please?
