Mike Azocar So long and thanks for all the Fish!
I ran across an interesting issue recently and I wanted to share the solution.á I am currently working on a fairly large project.á We have had a turbulent start and I was not able to baseline my project plan before my developers began working on their tasks.á I knew that from a schedule standpoint we were hosed, but other Earned Value calculations should still be ok.á I baselined my project plan but discovered an issue.á When I refreshed my project plan from TFS, all of the baselines were wiped out because 0's were stored in TFS! The fix turned out to be easy.á Here is what I did: 1.á I used the tfsfieldmapping.exe to download the field mappings for MS Project. 2. Iáremoved the field mapping for the baseline field and uploaded the new mappings to project. 3. I refreshed my project plan to collect the hours entered by my developers. 4. I added the field mapping for Baseline back into the MS Project field mappings. 5.áI published the Projectáback to TFS with the baselines. Hope this helps you sometime. Happy Coding!!!
