How can I add up the total Work hours in the column Baseline Work? RRS feed

  • Question

  • All Work columns in the Gantt chart add up per section and for the overall project, except the Baseline Work column. Anyone any idea? Thank you

  • I do not understand your problem because baseline work does sum up to the summaries.

    I replied earlier but apparently it didn't post so I'll try again.

    First, I assume when you say "per section" you mean "per summary line".

    Did you perhaps create the summary lines after you set the baseline, or maybe didn't save a baseline for the entire project? If so, then you can select all summary lines and set the baseline for selected tasks, or if you haven't made any changes since setting the baseline, clear it and then re-set.

    What version of Project are you using? Is it fully updated? If not, or you're not sure, run Windows Update. Note, if you are using a subscription version of Project, it is automatically updated so you won't need to worry about it.

    If neither of the above applies in your case, you may have a corrupt file. Try saving to XML and then re-open the XML file in Project.

    Hope this helps.
