Turn Automatic Calculation On or

By default, Microsoft Project recalculates information in your project plan as soon as you make a change that warrants recalculation. Such changes include assigning a resource, linking tasks, adding a cost, and so on.

If your project plan is very large or complex, you might find that constant recalculation slows down system performance. You can have Microsoft Project calculate your changes only when you give the command. To do this, click Tools, Options and then click the Calculation tab. Next to Calculation Mode, select the Manual option.

Whenever you make a change that requires a calculation, the word Calculate appears in the status bar. Press F9 to calculate all open projects. Press Shift+F9 to calculate just the active project.
