Last updated on MARCH 19, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Human Resources - Version 12.1 HRMS RUP8 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.1.3 version, Person / Assignment Issues

When attempting to end a second primary assignment the following error occurs.

FRM-40200: Field is protected against update


1)  People > Enter and Maintain form

2)  Click on Assignment form

Several Scenarios attempted

  a.   Changing the Assignment Status to "End".

  b.   Changing the Assignment Status to "Terminate Assignment".

  c.    Using the "X" button to delete the assignment.

The result of trying #a and #b  = s that it immediately pops up a message box "Cannot Terminate or End a Primary Assignment - Status will be reset.", and the status changes back to "Active".

The result of trying #c =  is that the only option it gives is to Purge the assignment completely, which we don't want - we just want to end-date it.
