When do you create baseline and when create snapshot.

I think the snapshot contains baseline, so only create snapshot is enough?
Who can correct me?

You would create a snapshot if you need to capture the state of more than one component (a baseline is for exactly one component). And a snapshot will automatically create any baselines that it might need, so creating a snapshot is sufficient, unless you want to "force" the creation of a baseline with a specific name.

Thanks Geoff, and could you help to figure that why I can still create baseline if nothing changed in the component?

You are allowed to create a baseline even if there are no changes so that you can create a baseline with that specific name (some organizations require that).
