Symptoms

System is allowing creation of a sub-task for a task which already has budget and is creating issue in Award Budget. It happens when a particular project is budgeted with many awards and the first award budgeting the project is done at Project level.

Example:
(1)
Project 400282
-tasks 1
-sub tasks 1.1 and 1.2
Award sac0113001
-fund Project 400282 at project level
-BUDGET:
BEM - By lowest tasks, PA Period
-budget both task 1.1 and task 1.2 for 250,000
Submit and baseline

(2)
Project 400283
-tasks 1
-sub tasks 1.1 and 1.2
Award sac0113002
-fund Project 4002823 at project level
-BUDGET:
BEM - Project by PA Period cat Res
-budget project level line at 500,000
Submit and baseline


(3)
Now take Award sac0113002 and fund Project 400282
-default new budget at lowest task level since previous is at lowest task level
-CHANGE budget to project level
-budget costs and submit and baseline
-Try to go to Project 400282,  Projects - Task 1.1 Click on  Add sub-task, you get an error as expected of:
'There is a budget for this task'

Now take Award sac0113001 and fund Project 400283
-default new budget at project level since previous is at project level
-CHANGE budget to lowest task  level
-Try to go to Project 400283,  Projects - Task 1.1 Click on  Add sub-task, -- this allows you to add a sub-task 1.1.1 - SHOULD NOT, it has not corrupted the Budget!
-now when you go to the budget details, the summary pages still shows the total amount HOWEVER details shows the NEW subtask of 1.1.1 instead of 1.1 that the budget was created at and the amount in the details page is 0.00, the budget is not corrupted.
