Troubleshooting

Earned Value Fields All Show Zeros

I’ve displayed each of the earned value tables described in this chapter, and all my tasks show zero values in the earned value fields. What am I doing wrong?

The earned value fields are calculated only up to the status date (or the current date, if you haven’t defined a status date). Even then, these fields are zero if you haven’t captured data into the baseline that’s being used for earned value calculations. Therefore, you should first check the status date by choosing Project, Project Information. You should also check to see which baseline is being used for earned value by choosing Tools, Options, and then selecting the Calculation tab and clicking the Earned Value button. The baseline that appears in the Baseline for Earned Value field should have the date when it was saved next to its name. If there is no date, you haven’t captured that baseline.
