How can I setup a calendar for a resource that has a strange shift:
eg
Start of shift 11:00 to 03:00 then a meal break from 03:00 till 03:30 and then works from 03:30 till 08:00

When I set it in project it says that the end of the shift must occur after the beginning. However at a mine site that works three rotating shifts one of these shifts (dog watch) works these hours. I'm stuck with project 98.

I am guessing from your description, that the shift is
11pm to 8am with a break at 3am

Try this:
1> On the Resource sheet, set the Base Calendar to 24 hours for this resource
2> edit the resource calendar and enter the times below:
12:00am to 3:00am
3:30am to 8:00am
11:00pm to 12:00am

MS Project 98 took this for me. Technically the resource's normal shift extends over 2 days. His Tuesday shift actually starts on Monday night.

Hope this helps.
