"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Once you have completed the Project Planning, you will want to save a baseline. Baseline represents the best guess estimate of the project's progression. Go to Tools....Tracking....Save baseline. Select the options to Save baseline for entire Project. Then you can either use the tracking Gantt view to show baseline vs actual. Or you can use the Gantt chart wizard to format your regular Gantt. I would personally just recommend using your tracking Gantt since it is already done for you.
