PWA 2003 Baseline Start and Finish Columns Empty in PWA but Populated in ProjectPro

Our PWA 2003 has several views which include a column for Baseline Start and Baseline Finish.  These are correctly populated in the MS Project 2003 client.  However, when viewed via PWA, they are empty.

These columns were working correctly until .NET 3.5 SP1 was installed.  That has since been removed (per kb  957254) and .NET 2.0 SP1 is the "highest" level of .NET installed in the farm (1 server running WSS 2.0 another running SQL Sever 2000).

Any guidance will be much appreciated.

Should you have a project file with the correct baselines, re-publish to the PWA.   They appear to have been dropped in the .Net updates.

The projects have been re-published.  Those columns still are not populated in PWA.

In addition, project team members are unable to see any tasks when going to the "My Tasks" page.  Yet, the tasks are properly assigned to Enterprise Resources and are visible when viewing the entire project in PWA, as well as, in ProjectPro 2003.

I don't believe the baseline values will show if the resource was not assigned to the task when the baseline was taken.

If tasks are not showing up, there are usually a few causes:
- enterprise resource booking type is set to "Proposed" on the resource sheet
- enterprise resource workgroup is set to "None" on the resource sheet
- resource My Tasks view is configured incorrectly (a filter is set, viewing "Current tasks" only...etc)

I appreciate the comments and suggestions.  However, nothing worked.  

So, I created a new PWA instance and had the malfunctioning projects rebuilt from scratch.  Now, tasks are visible and everything seems to be working fine.

It was my own solution - start over.  That is not an excellent solution but it did work.  The key was to have the projects rebuilt, not cut & paste.  With cut & paste, the issue remained.
