RE: MS Project - Duration field

I've heard several people talk about Milestones changing. I don' t know if this is related but my Senior Management and PMs are losing faith in the Clarity tool and I'd really like to get this fixed.

Problem: Durations change to unpredictable amount in MS project

Analysis: When comparing the task to Clarity, the clarity duration is correct. The issue seems to be with MS Project 2007 task only and we cannot determine what is causing the change. The baseline is still correct but the actuals are adjusting themselves:

A screen shot of the Clarity Task and MS Project 2007 Task is attached.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this issue? I've looked through both MS Project 2007 Green papers and did not see anything that explained this issue.

Thanks,
