    I have another possible bug in MSP 2013. Try this one
    Insert Date1, Insert Duration1, Insert Date2. Now go to custom fields and make date2 a formula [(date1)+(duration1). The obvious answer would be a new date, but this is what I get.

    Date1 Durat Date2
    Tue 7/8/14 0d Tue 7/8/14
    Tue 7/8/14 1d Sat 10/31/15
    Tue 7/8/14 2d Wed 2/22/17
    Tue 7/8/14 3d Sun 6/17/18
    Tue 7/8/14 4d Thu 10/10/19
    Tue 7/8/14 5d Mon 2/1/21

    it seems to move almost 14 months.

    Got any ideas on how to make this work?
