Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
When copying a project or creating a baseline using "Save a copy of the current project as a new baseline", the copied project (or restored baseline) does not contain any Activity Code Values.

The Activity Codes are Global Activity Codes that are not marked as Secure.

For issues with Project Activity Codes, EPS Activity Codes, and Codes marked as Secure, see: Activity Codes Lost After Copying Or Exporting And Importing Activities And Projects. (Doc ID 895549.1)

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Copies of the original project and baselines created using "Save a copy of the current project as a new baseline" should contain the same Global Activity Code values.

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

  1. From the Project View, copy and paste a project
  2. Open both projects together
  3. Sort by Activity ID and group by None
  4. Display columns for any activity code
  5. Values are missing in copy of project

OR

  1. Open a Project that contains activity code values
  2. Go to Project>Maintain Baselines
  3. Click Add and select "Save a copy of the current project as a new baseline"
  4. Select the new baseline and click Restore
  5. Open the restored baseline (project) along with the original project together
  6. Sort by Activity ID and group by None
