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.

Maintaining Baseline is like creating a list of projects which can be assigned as a baseline to the project.

Assigning baseline is to assign the current project or an existing baseline as the primary, secondary and tertiary baseline.

Primary baseline is used when calculating earned value.

If no baseline is selected, then current project will be used as a primary baseline.

When u will update baseline, it will overwrite. However, a log will be created after completing the update. Check the log to see the changes.

When u will update the baseline, at the bottom-right u will find an option ignore last update date. Tick this box.

To know more details, u can download p6 manual from this link:

(BTW which version u r using P6.2 or P6v7)
