I dont understand "slipping tasks" in MS Project 2003

I dont understand "slipping tasks" in MS Project 2003

I dont understand "slipping tasks" in MS Project 2003

Hey everyone,  can someone help me with slipping tasks in project 2003.  

I have a test file that im trying to figure it out with located here


What I want to do, is generate a report where it shows me tasks that are still not finished by todays date, but acording to the baseline, they should be finished.  I think that is what slipping tasks does (but feel free to correct me if im wrong).

so in that sample file I have on my website theres only 3 tasks - Build, test, and sell.

Build is 100% done

test is 25% done and according to todays date, it should be 100% done

sell hasnt been started.

I want a report to be generated that says the test stage is slipping.  Thats all... can anyone help me?

Thanks alot

I should also mention that when I try to generate a report on "slipping tasks" it says there is no data to show.

I figured it out on my own everyone.... I just made custom filters and custom reports to do it.
