Hi MSapiens/Planners,

I'm working on an MS Project file for quite sometime. It has got a baseline that was made long ago. Now, i want to see the critical path in that baseline. Can someone suggest me on sorting this out, using either custom filters or custom fields or any other possible means.


Thanks in advance.

Sorry Siddharth,

"Set Baseline" in MSP stores task and resource information, but not logic/relationships or float.  Since it is not possible to recover any logic from a stored baseline, you can't recover the baseline critical path.  Best practice is to save a separate mpp file of the baseline project.

Good luck, tom
