Why can't I see baseline work on the Task Usage view? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a task, which shows a baseline start/finish and baseline work value.  However, if I want to see that baseline work in a timephased view on the Task Usage view, the "Base. Work" field is just blank.  Obviously I'm doing something wrong, but I sure can't figure out how.

  • Here's what I noticed, but I don't understand why it works.

    I re-baselined my project, and now I see timephased baseline data on the Task Usage view where I didn't before.  So, why was my project showing me baseline hours, but not in the Task Usage view?

  • Hi,

    The only thing I can think of is that your task was planned out of the visual part of task usage (much later or earlier) such that the baseline work was there but you didn't see it

  • I was thinking the same thing, but shouldn't those values have appeared between the baseline start and baseline finish?

  • Hi,


    If you still have the version of the file that showed the problem you can mail it to

    I'll see if I can discover any logical explanation.

  • Jan,

    It turned out to be a corrupt file.  I sincerely appreciate your offer to help though!
