    Hi Siddu,

    If you have not created any projects with the Coding Mask you can edit it. If there are projects created with this coding mask then system will not allow you to modify it.

    • Hi Siddu,

      Delete those projects and then try and change the coding mask..

      What's the new coding mask you are planning to  use? If it is just modifying this -XXXXXXXXXXX into -XXX-000-XXX system i think will let you modify..

      Give it a try..

      regards

    You will have to erase the existing projects that use the coding mask.  You cannot just delete the projects because they are still in the database.  You will need to run the archiving process to remove them from the tables, then you can modify the coding mask.

    • Siddu ,

      1) Create New Coding Mask

      2) Lock the old coding mask .

      3) Create the projects with the  new coding Mask

      4) transfer all PR/PO , FI Postings , Project stock if any to the new Projects created.

      5) Delete /Lock the old Projects.

      Hope it helps.

    Hello Siddu ,

    Please refer to the note 453280 and execute the report for those 5 projects  . This will help you to update the project definition id based on the updated coding mask .

      Hi Siddu,

      As you had deleted the existing project than i think the data base needs to be refresh.

      Kindly try CJBN AND CJEN

      Thanks
