The baseline browser displays all of your time, cost, and task plan baselines. From here you can create new baselines or delete old baselines. Once a baseline is created it cannot be edited. Instead, you should create a new baseline to replace the old one. When you create the new baseline there is an option in the baseline wizard to base it on an existing baseline.
The baseline browser is reachable from the following locations of the Project Editor:
- The Task Status subtab of the Task Planning tab
- The Time subtab of the Budget tab
- The cost subtab of the Budget tab
Click the () to launch the baseline browser on each of these screens.
