    • Update Rate Matrix Data

      Figure 11

  9. Go to the Project > Baselines and create a baseline

  10. Check the Baseline Cost attribute value

    Figure 12

  11. Execute the Rate Matrix Job with the following options selected:

    • Extract Cost and Rate Information for the Scheduler

    • Prepare Rate Matrix Data

    • Update Rate Matrix Data

      Figure 13

  12. Go to the Project > Baselines and create a new baseline

  13. Check the Baseline Cost attribute value

    Figure 14

Expected Result: The amount should remain the same

Actual Result: The amount equals zero (0.00)
