Symptoms

Creating Self Service Project Timecard users are not able to save or submit Timecard once they receive the error message .

The expenditure item date is not within the active dates of the project
Cause: All expenditure items charged to a project must fall within the active dates of the project.
Action: If you wish to charge against this project for this date, change the expenditure item date to a date within the project start and end dates, or change the project's start or end date to include the expenditure item date.

The preference 'Timecard Delete Allowed' is set to No

Update the Timecard by removing the hours on the date(s) which is before the Project Start date and enter it on the dates which is on or after the Project start date you receive the error message 
Hrs- You must enter hours. Use Zero to enter no hours.

Now enter zero hours on those days for which the system is complaining and you again receive the 1st error message.

Basically the Timecard will not allow to be saved until you abandon the current Timecard and start over and then enter the time for the correct valid dates.
