Issue/Introduction

When saving a project back from MSP, the baseline details on some tasks are not being reflected in Clarity. This happens if a Outline Code field is populated for the task in Microsoft Project.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Export an existing project from Clarity to MSP OR create a new project in MSP
  2. Create a task, if one does not already exist
  3. Click on the Project tab - Custom Fields icon
  4. On the Type drop down, select Outline Code
  5. Click on the Lookup... button
  6. Enter at least one value for the lookup
  7. Click on Close and OK
  8. Add the Outline Code1 column to the view in MSP
  9. Select a value for the Outline Code1 field on the task
  10. Baseline the project (step 9 and 10 can also be switched)
  11. Save the project back to Clarity

Expected Results: The task baseline details such as Baseline Start and Finish get saved back to Clarity. 
Actual Results: The task baseline details do not Save back to Clarity. The task baseline record is not in the PRJ_BASELINE_DETAILS table either.
