  • Question

  • Dear All

               I have issue with baseline (MSP 2010). Below steps have been followed to save the baseline for selected task

    Step1: Selected the particular task which needs to be baseline

    Step2: Project --> Set Baseline -->

    Step3: click OK

    Moment I clicked ok i can see baseline work for selected tasks as well as summary tasks then published project.

    I have opened same project after 2-3 days and noticed that Baseline work is missing only for task level and not for summary level

    Kindly assist me where i was wrong.It happens some other resource for some other projects

    Is it product issue ?

    Awaiting for your reply

  • If you're really having data integrity issues - where the data is getting wiped out of a saved file - I would open a ticket with Microsoft support....assuming you've ruled out any user behavior issues.

  • Hi Santosh,

    Before I suggest anything just wanted to check on following 2 things :

    1) Are you working in Project Server mode?

    2) Is this plan created from a template and then baselined?

  • Are you baselining before you save the file for the first time?  I.e. you create the file, baseline, then save?

    If so, it could be related to this issue: http://azlav.umtblog.com/2012/04/12/baseline-save-permissions-blocked-in-newly-created-projects/

    Weird that it's getting wiped out on tasks but not summaries though.  How do you set a baseline?  For selected tasks?  All tasks?  Rollup to the summary is on/off?

  • Thanks for the reply Andrew

    First  I have done the baseline for entire project and  I have added few tasks and baselined it

    Step1: I have selected tasks which has to be baseline in MSP 2010

    Step2: clicked Selected tasks (Radio button)

    Step3: enabled below two checkboxes

                        To all summary tasks

                         From sub tasks into summary tasks

    Step4: Project has been saved without any errors

    After saving the project i can able to see Baseline work for tasks as well as summary tasks. I opened the same project after 2-3 days and noticed that Baseline work is missing only for tasks and not for summary tasks

    this is not regarding baseline rights issue it should be something else

    Kindly assist me to rectify this issue

    Regards

  • Normally this doesn't happen, just out of curiosity wanted to confirm - is the Baseline Work at Summary Task containing this task adding up Work hrs of this task? or is it just sum of other sub-tasks which were previously baselined. Is there a chance that on the said task PM missed adding resource (hence it never had Work hours) or Work hrs. and baselined it. Such things gets missed most of the times when tasks are manually scheduled. Please confirm on total Work hrs on Summary Task.

  • Dear Sapna

                        Baseline work at summary task containing this task adding up baseline work hrs

    E.g)

    Task Name               Baseline Work

    ~~~~~~               ~~~~~~~~~

    Summary Task           20

               Task1             10

               Task2             5

               task3             5

    I have done baselining after assigning resources to the tasks

    While saving baseline and saving the project am not facing any issues

    I have opened after 2-3 days and shocked that baseline work i missing for task level

    Task Name               Baseline Work

    ~~~~~~               ~~~~~~~~~

    Summary Task           20

               Task1             0

               Task2             0

               task3             0

    Let me know if anything else you need

    Regards

  • Hello Santhu,

    I think this may be fixed in the April 2012 CU.  See:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2598274

    Particularly:

    Assume that you open a project that has at least one baseline saved and that is in the Project 2007 format from a Project server. You do not have permission to save protected baselines. Then, you save the project in the Project 2010 format. In this situation, all data in the protected baselines in the project is lost.

    Does this describe what you are experiencing?
