  • The Project Baseline Work is the baseline work on the Project Summary Task (task 0). Ultimately it is the sum of all of the Assignment work (assuming you have assignments).  In your image above, the assignment baseline work is the work for joe, tom, bill and bob (which you are not displaying, but you are displaying the assignmentbaselinecost, even though it is just showing as Baseline Cost)

  • SamDany,

    Your post is confusing. For example, what are the "two Baselines"?

    When you set a baseline Poject saves baseline information for tasks, resources and assignments so what exactly are you trying to calculate? For example, in the screen shot below, task c has two assignments, bill and bob. When I saved a baseline Project saved the data for each assigned resource.

  • Hi John,Thanks for your response.

    Actually I am trying to understand how they calculate Planned % in SSRS report

    (SUM([AssignmentBaseline0Work])/[ProjectBaseline0Work])*100 as plannedComplete
    I know that [ProjectBaseline0Work] is Baseline Work but I don't know what is [AssignmentBaseline0Work]. Any suggestions? thanks.

  • Sam,

    It looks like Ben gave a good explanation. Did that answer your question? If so, give him the credit. If not, what additional information do you need?
