project professional 2010: opening a baseline RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    After I save a baseline, is there a way to open the baseline? I know I can add baseline fields to the current project plan such as "Baseline Work" or "Baseline Cost" but is there a way to open the baseline as a standalone project plan?

    Thanks,
    George

  • Hi George,

    sorry, Baseline is no standalone project plan, so you can't open in this way. You can create custom views, only displaying baseline data, if necessary. Not sure what you want to achieve?

  • Hi Barbara,

    Thanks for the help! Much appreciated!

    Yes I thought so but creating a view with only baseline fields wouldn't allow you to change the task name or assignment of a resource to a task on a baseline (just like we discussed some time ago). However, if it was possible to open the baseline as a standalone, it would be possible to change the tasks and assignments of a baseline.

    Thanks,
