Count of Text Categories Over 2000 Characters Not Recognized in Advanced Function (Doc ID 1543184.1)

Last updated on MARCH 17, 2016

Applies to:

Primavera Portfolio Management - Version 9.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On: PPM 9.0 and newer releases

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
An Advanced function that checks the "length" of a text-based category that has greater than 2000 characters,will always return a length of 2000 for text categories with more than 2000 characters. Also, text categories with greater than 2000 characters cannot be "edited" in a Scorecard.

For example, when using an advanced function to display the “length” for a text category (such as “I.A.1 Project Description” - which is in the CPIC configuration), PPM passes a value of 2000, even if it has more than 2000 characters.

STEPS
-----------------------
Here is an example of how to reproduce this behavior:

Step 1: Initialize a "test" category with 3000 characters of data

Changes

This occurs for all PPM releases newer than and including PPM 9.0. PPM 8.0 SP2 and older releases do not encounter this behavior.
