Symptoms

Grants Award Milestone status field allows free form entry

Award profile page Milestone status field (GM_AWD_MILE , MILESTONE_STAT) is set as "prompt table with no Edit", this is causing the page to take any free form entry. Which is not desired.
Would like to know if there is any specific reason, why this field is designed to take Free-form entry ?

It has been discovered that the Milestone Status field allows users to type in values that are not included in the lookup list and save them on the page.
This field is located on the Milestones tab from the path Grants>Awards>Award Profile.

REPLICATION STEPS

The approved/valid Milestone statuses are entered from the following path:
Set up supply chain/financials > product related > grants > milestone statuses
