Calendar Time Periods should be used to convert the baseline durations from hours to days.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Under "Admin, Admin Preferences, Time Periods," ensure Hours/Day is set to 8, and the "Use assigned calendar to specify the number of work hours for each time period" is selected.
2. Create a new Project.
3. Under "Enterprise, Calendars," add a new Project level calendar with 24 hours of working time. Set the Time Periods so that Hours/Day is set to 24.
4. Under "Enterprise, Projects," highlight the Project and on the Default tab set the newly created calendar as the default.
5. Under "Project, Activities," add a new Activity to the Project with 1 day duration.
6. Under "Project, Maintain Baselines," add a copy of the current Project as a Baseline.
7. Under "Project, Assign Baselines," set the newly created Baseline as the Project Baseline.
8. In the Activities view, add a column for "BL Project Remaining Duration."
9. Notice the Baseline Remaining Duration for the Activity is 3 days.
