MS Project Double Task Dependency w/ Automatic Duration Calculation

By dan ·
In MS Project, I'm trying to create a task that has a double dependency where the duration is automatically updated based on the two dependencies. Here's a more detailed explanation as an example:

1. Task A (call it "Analyze Project") starts on 1 Oct with a duration of 3 days.
2. Task Z (call it "Finalze Project") starts when tasks C-Y are all completed and lasts for 1 day.
3. Task B (call it "Monitor Schedule") starts when Task A is complete and lasts until Task Z is complete. The start date, finish date, and duration should automatically recalculate if Task A changes or Task Z changes.

I have tried using multiple predecessors. It will fill in the start and finish dates, but not automatically modify the duration. I have to manually set the duration to a specific number of days to get the start date automatically change, which defeats the purpose of having the double dependencies.
