Hi

Need response on behaviour of Resource Availability based on configuration of different Work Effort Unit of Measurement.

Sample case as following.
Resource 123 is based in UK and resource availability is 7 hours per day. There is 1 day of non-workday in UK for Aug '12 and so the UK calendar is set as 22 working days. Total number of workday (Base Calendar) is 23 days.

(1) When am set the Work Effort Unit of Measurement as Hours -> it shows the Resource Availability as 22 x 7 = 154 hours
(2) When am set the Work Effort Unit of Measurement as FTE -> it shows the Resource Availability as [(22 x 7) / (23 x 8)] = 0.84 FTE
(3) When am set the Work Effort Unit of Measurement as Days -> it shows the Resource Availability as 154 / 8 = 19.25 days

Is the calculation for item (3) correct?
Is this a normal behaviour?
