Q&A: “Why doesn’t the [BL1 Start] column data match the [Start] column data when the Baseline is set to Current Project?”

Written on . By CPM Solutions

When the Baseline is set to “Current Project”, you might notice that activities with actual dates are not getting the right baseline.

Here is the solution:=
1. Open Project Management Application, Click [Admin] menu, then select [Admin prreferences…].

2. Click the [Earned Value] tab on the left side.  Notice the [Earned value calculation] section at the bottom. Select [At Completion values with current dates] in the dropbox, and click [Close] to return.

3. Recreate or update your baselines again using [Maintain Baselines] function, you will see both [Start] and [BL 1 Start] will now have the same value.
