Can MS Project automatically calculate (in days, weeks, etc.) the amount of time a task is past its deadline? (I know...probably a really easy question. But, I can't for the life of me find the answer).

For example, if the proposed finish was 8/1/06 and the actual finish date was 8/28/06, the value in the column (that is... the column I hope exists) would automatically calculate and say "28 days"? There is probably a very easy solution here and I swear I have looked everywhere in the MS Project Help and online. I'm approaching 48 hours without sleep, so maybe that's why I'm not finding the answer... Thanks.

Assuming the last task in your project is a milestone (duration=0) then the LAG time for that milestone will give the figure you want.
