Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi there!

I am fairly new to Primavera, therefore the below question may seem a little strange to some of the pros here.

In the programme update for the client, I've been asked by a colleague to calcualte % complete that we should be on as of Data Date used for the current reporting period. I normally use % Schedule Complete to show the % complete that we should be on now. (I hope this is the right way of doing it!)
If this is the correct way of identify the % Complete we should be as of a specific Data Date, then which Baseline would this be calculated against - Project BL, Primary BL..etc? What if I have few BL assiged, which one will be picked up?

I apprecate your help!

SChedule % complete is correct

It comes from the baseline copy defined as the "Project" baseline

SChedule % complete shown on summary (eg WBS) bands are waited BY COST this is very important to understand
