If different Employees are created with the same name, the wrong employee may be saved in the activity resources which leads to a No Matching Buffer error when drilling down to the project resources page later.

This issue can reproduce as follows:

  1. Ensure that Program Management is installed.
  2. Create a new employee with the same name as an existing employee.
  3. Create a project and activity.
  4. Add the new employee via the Resources by Activity page
  5. Enter a role for the employee and save. The emplid of the original employee is saved instead of the new employee.
  6. The user then gets the error if they try and drill down on resources from the project general page.
