Dan you’re correct. I missed the read of the numbered baseline and variance…oops Standard practice for me (and I say me because baseline standards aren’t consistent between those who write about it), is to always use Baseline as your “current” baseline. Baseline1 is your first baseline, baseline2 is the baseline of your next stagegate, and so forth. That way you can compare baselines over time.
Every time you reset a complete baseline you do it to Baseline and the next numbered baseline. Then you update Baseline with selected tasks when you have minor change requests or additional tasks. Hope that makes sense.

You can copy a baseline to any other baseline by using the Set Interim Plan option within the Set Baseline dialog. For your question above, select Baseline in the Copy field and Baseline’n’ in the Into field. Good luck…
