    Cash Flow Report Total Cost Does Not Match Gantt Total Cost?

    Can someone tell my why my Cash Flow Report total does not match the Total Cost shown in the Gantt View of my project? I use MS Project 2003. I ran a Cash Flow Report from View/Reports/Costs/Cash Flow and my project total shows a total that is different from the Total Cost.

    Pretty tough to tell without some more details. I am guessing you are comparing the Total Cost field at the Project Summary task line to the last page of the Cost report?

    Have you customized the report in any way? The default format is to show "Costs" -- is it possible you are seeing remaining or actual costs?

    Feel free to attached the file (you'll need to zip I believe) and I'll take a look.

    Yes, when I look at the Total Cost on the Gantt View of my project, it shows an amount different than the last page of the Cash Flow Report. They should be the same.

    I have not customized the report. The report attributes are:

    Row: Resources, and
    Column: Cost
    Filter: All Resources

    You are looking at two different things. If you report shows "Resources" you are looking a cash flow for resources. If you look at the Gantt chart, you are seeing Task costs.

    Do you have fixed costs assigned to any tasks? Apply the Cost table and look for fixed costs -- they will NOT appear in resource costs.

    Apply the cost table to the Resource Sheet and add all costs there -- do they match the report?

    THANK YOU!! I do have fixed costs. I had rolled up my activities and I have assumed that the fixed costs would show in the rolled up total.

    I see why my total wasn't adding up.

    Thanks for your help!
