When I opened up my projects, the activities have strikethroughs, even the ones starting and ending past today's date.  I have never used the project status / calculate function nor will it let me correct the problem.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thank you,

Ryann

rcottonaro43,
It appears your tasks have been inactivated. You can correct the issue in one of two ways.
1. Add the Active field to the view. It likely says "no"
2. Change the Active field for the first task to "yes"
3. Do a fill down on the Active field
or
4. Select all tasks
5. Go to Task > Schedule group and toggle the Inactive icon

Hope this helps.
