Output messes up for a 2003 file (CTS-3109)


While converting attached MPP file into PDf, output gets completely messed up. Chart lines become infinite, the reason is it isn’t rendering Finish Date correctly and puts some random distant future dates, so the chart obviously reflects the same.

Pls note that this file was originally a 2010 file, and it was saved as 2003 format before processing. I know it’s a very rare usecase, generally we don’t do it, but technically users can do it if they have multiple machines with different MS Project version. So I just thought of reporting it.
