Before the release of version 15.0.01, baselines of local projects – as opposed to Powerproject Enterprise projects – were separate files, with a .PPB file extension. From version 15.0.01 onwards, any new baselines that you create for local projects are embedded automatically into the corresponding project file. For this reason, you are no longer asked to specify a location and file name for new baselines when you create them.
Although you can continue to work with any existing separate baselines as you did before, you may want to embed them into the corresponding project. Embedding baselines into their corresponding projects makes it easier to share projects with other Powerproject users, as you do not have to provide both the project file and the baseline file(s); you need only to make the project file available, as it contains both the project and its baselines. If you save a copy of a project using the version 15 file format, any embedded baselines will be saved with the file and will be available in the copy of the file.
If you are working with a baseline that is embedded into a local project, or a baseline in a Powerproject Enterprise project, you can now export the baseline to a separate file. You may want to do this to make a baseline available to someone else without providing them with the project itself, or to save a copy of a baseline for reference purposes before deleting it from a project.
Baselines of Powerproject Enterprise projects are stored in data sources and baselines of Powerproject Vision projects always exist as separate files; you cannot embed these types of baselines.
