The UDFVALUE.Table_Name Value Is Null When Creating or Copying an Activity in P6 Professional (Doc ID 2320778.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 16, 2022

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.



When adding or copying an activity within P6 Professional, the table_name column in the UDFVALUE table is set to a null (blank) value.  Additionally, when copy/pasting an activity which has some child object UDF value (where the UDFVALUE.table_name is populated), the new activity results in a null UDFVALUE.table_name.

Performing the same action in P6 Web results in the UDFVALUE.table_name column being populated with the associated UDF type as expected, confirming that the issue is related to INSERT statements triggered from P6 Professional, no matter how the INSERT statement is initiated (either from a direct UDF value creation or from copy/paste).


When adding a UDF value from P6 Professional, the UDFVALUE.table_name column for the row should be populated with the associating type and should not be null.


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

  1. In P6 Professional select Enterprise > User Defined Fields (UDF) from the menu.
  2. Add an Activitiy UDF.
  3. Open a project and go to the Activities view.
  4. Add the UDF to the column list, add a value, and commit the changes.
  5. Using a tool such as SQLPlus or SQL Developer, connect to the P6 database as the schema owner (default admuser) and execute the following query to confirm the UDFVALUE.table_name field contains a null value:
