Baseline Cost is "$0.00 but I have cost associated to the task . . . . RRS feed

  • Question

  • I inserted Baseline Cost but it is showing $0.00 in the Project Summary Task but I have cost associated to task, why is it showing $0.00?

    Thank you for your help in advance,

  • Celia,

    First things first. What version of Project are you using? Is it updated with the latest service pack?

    Did you actually set a baseline for your plan? If not, then none of the baseline fields will be populated.

  • Hi Celia,

    If I understand your question correctly, the Baseline Cost is manually entering for some/all the tasks! The Baseline cost is not automatically aggregated when the values are manually entered as the value for this field is updated when the Project baseline is set (the value is updated with the current Cost value when the baseline is saved). Also, when you take a baseline for a limited number of tasks you need to select the checkbox to Rollup the baselines to the summary tasks

    Hope this helps
