In the Project Plans sheet, you maintained data as below:
Unit of Work as Working days
Hours per Working Day as 365

For the field Hours per Working Day, if you use Working days as Unit of Work, enter the number of hours that add up to one working day. As we have 24 hours in a day, the field Hours per Working Day should contain value 24 or lesser.
