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.

Dear Geo

  1. Primary baseline is that base line when the project just startred. ie initial base line. secondary baseline or itermidiate base line is that when there is some changes occours in the middle of the project and schedule differs from original base line. It may be due to some addition of activity or deletion of activity. same is the tertiary base line. These base are used for comparision of the base line.

 

2. after updating the activity or adding the activity you create a new base line (secondary or tertiary). now for comparing you may assign any of the base line (Primary, secondry, tertiary) that base line is the project base line.
