MAINTAIN BASE LINE :

First i am going to brief  you the Baseline can be create 

  • Current project as a Baseline
  • convert another project to new Base line       

Step 1.  Go to Project and select from the drop down maintain baseline and press add button then new window will be appear there you can select either you want to add 1. Current Project as Base line or Convert another Project as New Baseline Choise is yours

Hi Sahibzada

Is this what you are looking for ?

Try this; In P6 you have 3 steps to ensure that the baseline milestones are not shifting during updating the schedule.

Step 1: Go to maintain baseline and add new baseline. Give the baseline and clear identification. Say BASELINE APRIL 2012

Also make the BASELINE APRIL 2012 your PROJECT BASELINE. this is at the lower part of the same form

Step 2: Go to Assign baseline and assign the baseline BASELINE APRIL 2012. 

Step 3: Go to View bars and select the tick box for PROJECT BASELINE. 

You should now see that the PROJECT BASELINE bar is displayed , usually in a yellow color, under the green colored bars.

If you now update the schedule the yellow PROJECT BASELINE bars and milestones are remaining in the same position and the remaining duration bars these are color green are moving.

In short, maintain the baseline, assign the baseline and display the baseline
