I have baselined individual project plans and recorded actual progress of the tasks. Then, I inserted (linked) the individual project plans to a master project plan (another mpp file). Though, Earned value visual report of individual projects displays the right actual Cost, earned value and planned value, but the earned value visual report of the master project plan displays the earned value and planned value with right values, but the actual value is 0. I verified the service pack, it is latest. Any help, is appreciated
There are a couple of pieces that you might check to make the Earned value works correctly, you MUST have a baseline, even in the Master Plan which is not going to be there by default. Secondly you must also have a Status Date entry for the Master Plan, since Earned Value reporting bases the calulations from the Status Date, not the current date.
Provide more details after checking these, thanks.
