  • Sapna's method will enforce the behavior for sure.  One easier method may
    be to simply create a custom field that flags any projects with unbaselined
    tasks:
     
    IIF([Baseline Start]=ProjDateValue('NA'),"Unbaselined","Baselined")
     
    ...then create a Project Center view that flags any project that has unbaseline
    activities.  You could also get more creative and use a formula that calculates
    the number of unbaseline tasks/total tasks and flags projects accordingly.
     
    That may be a more light weight method to achieve the same thing.

  • You can write a Macro for it to check if the tasks have baseline or not :

    Loop through all baselines and check their save date:
    For i = 0 To 10
         IsDate (ActiveProject.BaselineSavedDate(i))
    Next i

    For further assistance on macro you can post it on the Project Customization Forum : http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/project2010custprog/threads
