To modify Project Definition Key

Hi Gurus,

I have a query regarding Project Definition Key. For example say we have defined the following structure as key in Project Coding Mask (X.000000.0000), we have created a Project and whose definition key is X.000123.

One of the user has changed the Project Definition Key from X.000123 to X.000123.0045, now the user wants the Project Definition Key to put it as X.000123.

When we try to do it system gives an error and its description is "Project X.000123 RELEASE already exists".

Pls. let me know is there any solution to this problem.

Thanks very much in advance.

Regards,

Rama

    Hello

    Check whether another project Project X.000123 exists in the back end. I assume there is another project by the same name. If there is a project already existing by the same name then you might have to delete the old project Remember you will not be able to delete the project if already there is a budget or account assignment. In that case you will have to delete the assignments and assign the deletion flag and archive the project. Or better create a new project with a new number.

    hi

    the object with the same Project definition is already exists and the status is "Released"

    the Option is

    you can delete the Project Definition and save (provided no postings are made)

    you can recreate the Project definition.
