Symptom #1:

You have exceeded the default amount of codes (50) in the following categories: $Category. You must either remove codes with IDs over 50 or add more code columns to the RPD to see them in OBI.

Symptom #2:
USING THE WEB BASED CONFIGURATION UTILITY FOR STAR (http://<server>:<port>/p6rpd), the following message generates every time "Save changes" is clicked on the screen:

The amount of Codes you selected are over 50. You will need to contact support to update your RPD.

2. Run the file based STAR config wizard and advance to the P6 EPPM Code Screen Mapping screen
  a. Move over >50 codes
  b. Attempt to advance to next screen
  c. Note the message which occurs
  d. Any additional execution of STAR once the users advances past this screen will continue to generate the message.

3. Run the web based configuration utility
