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,

I have imported a file without its baseline. But I see baseline start/finishes dates are different than project start/finish dates. I checked there is no assigned baseline. I expect if there is no baseline assigned to the project then baseline dates should be equal to project dates.

Could you please explain ?

Regards

Hi Irfan,

Insert the Planned Start and Planned Finish dates in the gantt chart columns; you should find that these dates are different from Early Start / Finish dates, and the same as Baseline ones.

When a project has no baseline, planned dates are used instead.

Years ago, the P6 guru Ron Winter had published a very interesting paper "Understanding P6 dates"; easy to find on the Internet, as I do not know how to share my local file on the forum
