Cannot Update Subproject Budget Field when Project is in Approved Status (Doc ID 1906718.1)

Last updated on MARCH 29, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management - Version 1.9.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to update the SubProject Budget field for a SubProject in APPROVED status, even with the “ALLOW BUDGET UPDATE” option of the PROJECT BUDGET OPTIONS Business Rule set to ON, the following error occurs.

FRM-40200: Field is protected against update

The SubProject needs to be changed to CREATED status before the Subproject Budget can be updated. On Line Help states the following:

ALLOW BUDGET UPDATE - If this option is set to ON, Subproject Budgets can be updated when the Project/Subproject is in Approved status.

The functionality works the same whether this Business Rule option is set to ON or OFF- the subproject needs to be set back to Created status for the update to be allowed.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Set the “ALLOW BUDGET UPDATE” option of the PROJECT BUDGET OPTIONS Business Rule to ON,
2. Pull up a Project in Approved status
3. Navigate to the SubProject
4. Attempt to update the Subproject Budget field. FRM-40200: Field is protected against update is displayed
5. Set the Subproject status to Created
6. Update of the Subproject Budget field is allowed.
