TaskDuration not working here

When I checked field properties I didn't see a formula of any kind in row equation or elsewhere. This is a system field so maybe it isn't necessary but, in any case, TaskDuration is blank in my grid. Thoughts, suggestions, help?

Naturally, both TaskActionStart & TaskActionEnd are both filled in w data.

Re: TaskDuration not working here

TaskDuration is typically used in Gantt charts. Check you grid's properties > Gantt Chart > Duration Field to see if it is used or not (it's use is optional)

 Thanks Pierre.  In the grid where the data is added & then displayed in the Gantt chart is where duration is not displayed. I would think it should indicate something. In grid properties the TaskActDuration field is included (but is not an option). I've included it in the grid. 
The only options seem to be: Overiew, Zoom buttons, histogram -- none of these options are selected. Thanks for  your support.

Could be a naming issue as All TaskActxxx fields have been renamed a while ago. Best is to check the field numbers:
 
In the sample file:

Pierre, Names match up but still not working. Maybe I'm doing something wrong; hard for you to tell long distance. This is the first opportunity I've had to make use of Gantt charts & am a bit frustrated I think.

Given the amount of development being thrown at IQ these past months, it may not be on your radar. Or maybe bc syncing IQ's calendar with Google calendar is too time consuming ;-) this has no priority but it may also be a bug & so, whenever you get a chance, if you (or anyone) could see if it's working on another win 8.1 machine, I'd appreciate it.

It's the end of the world but I would like to be able to total the # of hours worked & thought this might do it.

Keep up the good work.

We can talk and/or screen share if you like. Likely, the issue is a small one.

Lots of ways to total # hours worked:
  1. Set a hierarchy equation for your hoursWorked field: parent = max(children)
  2. Select the hours and right-click > Info
  3. Open the Pivot table view
HTH !

I'd like to figure it out either by screen sharing (probably better) or telephone. Whatever, whenever works best for you.

HoursWorked field is easy enough to create but I thought that's what the TaskDuration field was all about, i.e. figuring out the difference between TaskStart & TaskEnd since it's a system field, I figured why re-invent the wheel? :-)

Or am I missing the point of those fields?
