Issues Fixed by Project Server 2007 Service Pack 1 – 2

Project Server KB 937908 In the My Tasks page, items are grouped by project. By default, the maximum number of items to display on a page is 30. When the maximum number of items is reached, paging occurs. You have to switch between the pages to view all the tasks. If a project grouping is collapsed, the page does not refresh to bring tasks from other pages back. Therefore, the page does not display 30 items to the user. This causes tasks that straddle the paging to become orphaned from the project.
Project Server KB 937908 When a project manager receives a task update, there is no way for the project manager to know what has changed within the specific update. Also, the view in Approvals/Task Updates shows only the current period.
Project Server KB 937908 Using the local calendar may cause a variance between PWA and Project Professional.
Project Server KB 938189 Custom fields in a Project 2007 project appear in the order in which they are created. However, the custom fields are not sorted alphabetically by name.
Project Server KB 938889 When you migrate projects from an earlier version of Microsoft Office Project to Project 2007, any enterprise outline code that contains formulas may not behave as expected. Specifically, when you try to change the value of the outline code, the value may not change unless you delete and then re-create the outline code. 
Project Server KB 938889 When you copy and paste an indented task under a different parent task, the indented task does not become a child of the new parent task.
Project Server KB 938889 When you try to publish a Project 2007 project in Project Web Access, you may receive the following error message:
Error summary/areas:
Reporting message processor failed
ReportingProjectChangeMessageFailed
ReportingProjectChangeMessageFailed
ReportingProjectChangeMessageFailed
ReportingProjectChangeMessageFailed
ReportingProjectChangeMessageFailed
ReportingProjectChangeMessageFailed
Queue
GeneralQueueJobFailed
This issue occurs when you create one or more empty tasks in a project.
Project Server KB 938889 If an enterprise outline code has an incorrect code mask applied to it, incorrect values can be entered into the outline code.
Project Server KB 939161 Consider the following scenario. You add both standard and generic enterprise resources to a Microsoft Office Project Server 2007 project. You use a reporting database to track the time that the resources are available and their capacity. However, when you view the reporting database table, only the standard enterprise resources are present in the table. The generic enterprise resources are missing.
Project Server KB 939162 When you try to run a Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro to access each Task object in the ActiveProject object in Microsoft Office Project 2007, you receive the following error message:
Run-time error ‘438’: Object doesn’t support this property or method. 
Project Server KB 939163 When you add multiple values to a lookup table that is used by an outline code, Microsoft Office Project 2007 takes longer than expected to add the new values. In some cases, it may take five to 10 times longer to add the new values.
Project Server KB 939182 When you try to set the baseline for a subtask and then roll up the baselines to a summary task, the summary task displays an incorrect value.
Project Server KB 939594 You create an OLAP cube in Project Server 2007. You try to use the "Resource is Active," "Resource is Generic," or "Resource is Team" dimension from the MSP_Portfolio_Analyzer cube. When you do this, no resources are displayed. 
Project Server KB 939595 You open the Resource Information dialog box in Project 2007, click either the Windows account or Details, and then perform any other action. When you do this, Project 2007 crashes. 
Project Server KB 939595 When you try to open a link in a task to a task in a different project that resides on Project Server, you may receive the following error message:
Cannot find specified project.
This issue occurs if the project that was linked to was renamed.
Project Server KB 939595 When you use the Leveling function on a collection of tasks, the end dates of some tasks are not calculated correctly. Additionally, the end date of these tasks and the of project may be much later than expected
Project Server KB 941426 After you apply the update KB 940133, the pjclient.cab file is updated. However, only the pjgrid12.ocx file inside the pjclient.cab file is updated. Additionally, the ASP pages that are required for pushing and updating controls on the Project Web Access (PWA) client are not updated.
Project Server KB 941426 When tasks are being updated in PWA, you cannot open the project in Project 2007 or Project 2007 may stop responding.
Project Server KB 941426 The server-side scheduling code does not check for assignment work contours values during the scheduling operation.
Project Server N/A N/A If a project calendar has default start and end times other than 8am and 5pm, certain calculations are incorrect. For example, if you have a task that starts on 9/26 and ends 9/27, and you work 7 hours per day, the total work is 14 hours. If you then enter a new end date as 9/28, the total work is recalculated as 24 hours because Project 2007 assumes that you work 8 hours per day.
Project Server N/A N/A When you try to reassign tasks to other team members, you may receive the following error message:

The selected task(s) could not be reassigned due to the following reason(s):
Access Denied
This issue may occur if you are the assignment owner and not the current resource.

Project Server N/A N/A You create an enterprise template that has enterprise resources. If you create a project from the template, the project does not recognize the resources as enterprise resources. Instead, the resources are listed as local resources.
Project Server N/A N/A Dataset constraints are too strict for resource custom field values. The same custom field value is returned for each resource per project. However, the key only specifies custom field and this causes duplicate key errors.
Project Server N/A N/A When you try to save a light-weight project that has custom task fields and you have a summary task in the project, you may receive the following error message:

Failed to enable constraints. One or more rows contain values violating non-null, unique, or foreign-key constraints. 

Project Server N/A N/A Light-weight projects will not work correctly if the projects have milestone tasks.
Project Server N/A N/A When you try to close tasks by using the admin features, you may receive the following error message:

The selected Tasks could not be locked because of the following reasons: A required custom field value was not provided.

Project Server N/A N/A If you have a project level custom field that uses a formula, the custom field does not recalculate for activity and proposal projects.
Project Server N/A N/A When you try to save an activity plan after you set value in the second custom field, the activity plan cannot be saved and you may receive the following error message:

An error has occurred when saving your project to the server. Please contact your administrator. 

Project Server N/A N/A If you connect to a server and then edit enterprise formulas, you may destroy the formulas if the client settings use a semicolon.
Project Server N/A N/A Both actual and scheduled work time-phased assignment data will be inaccurate in the remote database (RDB) and cubes.
Project Server N/A N/A You enter values into a resource plan but make a mistake. When you save the resource plan, you receive an error. After you fix the incorrect cells and save again, other valid data is lost.
Project Server N/A N/A You cannot view all potential owners in the Owners list on the Edit Project Properties page. You can only see the users who have the permission to save projects.
Project Server N/A N/A If any fields are changed in the assignment details page before you submit the task assignment, the change log for Actual works that is imported from timesheet is lost.
Project Server N/A N/A When you add resources to the team for a proposal, the resource custom field values for the resource are cleared from the view.
Project Server N/A N/A If a save fails and blocks correlation, you may receive a correlation blocked error on a second save. This is because the Project save function cannot automatically handle CorrelationBlockedExcepitons .
Project Server N/A N/A When you add some resource custom field values in the Build Resource Plan Team page view, most values do not appear.
Project Server N/A N/A If you have a language pack installed on a Project server, those users who view PWA custom field data by using the language pack cannot see the data.
Project Server N/A N/A When you try to import a timesheet in PWA and there are null values in the assn_work and assn_act_work field in the msp_assignments_saved table, the import fails and you receive the following error message:

Error – unknown error – troubleshoot with Windows SharePoint Services.

Project Server N/A N/A After creating a deliverable and linking it to a task, you may receive the following error message: "An unspecified error has occurred. Error Code: -2146827187"  
Project Server N/A N/A You create a custom field and then set or change the "Calculation for Summary Rows" setting. When you do this, the setting is saved, but it is not read the next time that the Edit Custom Field page is read. Therefore, it is always set to "Use Formula."  
Project Server N/A N/A When you make changes to the Option or Time column on the Daily Backup Schedule page, your changes are not saved.  
Project Server N/A N/A Custom field multi-level value drop-down lists are not displayed correctly in Project Web Access if the values have long descriptions. 
Project Server N/A N/A After you save and publish a resource plan, you may receive the following error message: "The resource plan is no longer checked out to you and your changes will not be saved.  Contact the Project Server administrator." This issue occurs because the "Save and Publish" job was not completed before the Web page was refreshed.
Project Server N/A N/A You create a server-side plan, set a custom duration field value, and then save. When you convert the server-side plan to a project and then try to open it in Project Professional, the value for the custom duration field is not displayed.   
Project Server N/A N/A You create a duration lookup table via the PSI that does not specify the duration format. When users try to launch Project Professional and connect to the server, they may receive a "job has failed" error followed by an error message that states that the enterprise template did not load.  
Project Server N/A N/A If you try to reopen a project soon after closing it, you may receive an error message that states that the project cannot be found or that it may not be completely saved. This issue occurs because the last save job has not yet finished. This error is more likely to occur for projects that are large and have a lot of custom field data. 
Project Server N/A N/A If you create a resource center view and then apply a server-side Cost Rate filter, the value that you enter for the filter is multiplied by 100.
Project Server N/A N/A You track tasks on an "Hours of work done per period" basis. If the actual work that you enter occurs before the assignment’s start date, you cannot use the Assignment Details page to add remaining work.  You may also receive the following warning: "New finish date must occur after start date and between 1/1/1984 and 12/31/2049."  
Project Server N/A N/A If you try to create a server-side project with task durations that are longer than 6.6 years, you may receive an error that states that the duration is invalid. The limit has been corrected to 64 years (1/1/1984 – 12/31/2049) to cover all of Project time.
Project Server N/A N/A When working in the Project Web Access Timesheet view, columns that contain very long project names, task names, and other names expand to be very wide. This condition makes navigating the page very difficult. Now, the column widths stay more constant. As you select cells, the row height automatically expands so that you can see the full text string. 
Project Server N/A N/A If you delete a value from an existing lookup table, you may lose the entire value list.  
Project Server N/A N/A The Active Directory Resource Pool Synchronization feature does not populate the Assignment Owner field.  Therefore, resources do not see their task assignments until that field is populated and the assignments are published again. 
Project Server N/A N/A Extended characters may not be displayed correctly in Project Web Access.  For example, you have a resource whose name is Sørensen.  When the name is displayed in the Timesheet Header on the Timesheet page, the "ø" is replaced with "&#248."  
Project Server N/A N/A Creating a new resource through Project Professional does not set the default assignment owner or timesheet manager.  Therefore, the resource cannot assign a status to his or her own assignments in Project Web Access until an administrator sets these properties and republishes the project.  
Project Server N/A N/A When you save a project to the Project Server server, you may receive the following error message: "Project Server encountered a problem with this error code: 42." This issue may be caused by bad data in a field that causes a dependent field calculation to fail. This unexpected data causes an overflow exception that Project Server cannot handle.
Project Server N/A N/A A user does not see any plans in Project Center. However, the user could previously see plans. This issue occurs because of an incorrect SQL query statement that returns no valid values for the Project Center view. 
Project Server N/A N/A If a Project Server process loses its SQL connection, it may not be able to recover and reconnect. Therefore, the Microsoft Office Project Server Queue Service needs to be manually restarted. Now, the service will restart so that processing can continue.
Project Server N/A N/A When using the Resource Substitution Wizard, other plans for which resources are also assigned are not found and listed in the wizard.  This issue makes it difficult to manage over-allocations for those same resources in other plans.
Project Server N/A N/A You create a resource plan for the second time during a Project session. You change the booking type setting for a resource from Committed to Proposed. Then, you try to save and publish the resource plan. When you do this, the booking type is not retained.  
Project Server N/A N/A When creating and working with large server-side plans, the system may appear to hang or you may receive a time-out error.  
Project Server N/A N/A When updating tasks via PSI calls, you may see queue jobs blocked, and you may receive SQL database deadlock errors.   
Project Server N/A N/A An enterprise resource is checked out by a system process such as the Active Directory Resource Pool Synchronization, and the resource is not correctly checked back in. When this occurs, the resource does not appear on the Force Check-in Enterprise Objects page. This condition makes it impossible to check in the resource from Project Web Access.  
Project Server N/A N/A You import a WSS task list into a server-side plan in Project Web Access. If you are using a non-standard calendar, Project Web Access may display an error message that resembles the following: "System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: ProjectServerError(s) LastError=ProjectSchedulingEngineException Instructions: Pass this into PSClientError constructor to access all error information." 
Project Server N/A N/A When editing a custom field that has a graphical indicator from the Project Properties page, the edit is not always updated. Additionally, the graphical indicator does not change.
Project Server N/A N/A When drilling into a Project view for a large or complex project, a long delay occurs, and the project is not displayed. Instead, you may receive the following message: "Project Center cannot access the project(s) you are trying to view. It is most likely that you either don’t have permissions to view the project, another user has deleted this project(s) before you were able to view it or that another user is in the process of publishing the project." 
Project Server N/A N/A When you try to use the Build Team feature in Project Web Access, you may receive the following error message: "Unknown Error."
