PPM 5.0 Administration

Hi Experts

We recently upgraded to PPM 5.0 on Netweaver Business Client

The problem i face is with Project and Portfolio Administration.

I have an existing Initiative template but I cannot create a new Initiative template.

If i try to create an Initiative template, i select the bucket, Initiative type and click on start.

I receive error :

You cannot create Phase for Project Template

Status of Project Template does not permit you to change the structure

An error occurred in the creation of the application object

"Change attributes" is not allowed (Project Template )

"Change attributes" is not allowed (4E11520AC08211E0E1008000C0A803A2 )

Please could you guys help.

Second problem is that if i am in a project Template (cProject/Item)

And click on 'Resources' Tab, i get a dump :

" Line types of an internal table and a work area not compatible."


If i am in a normal cProject and click on the Resources Tab, it opens with no problem.

Can anyone tell me what i am doing wrong

Is there config that i am missing ?

It seems that something is not correct with the Portfolio & Project Administration.

      The cause of the problem is due to incorrect setting of status object

      'IX1' (Initiatives: Project Template), which does not have a initial

      status, so that the program failed to find out, if the object can be

      changed or not from status point of view.

      Please carry out the following steps to correct it.

      1. RUN transaction BS12

      2. Scroll down the page, till you find the record 'IX1', put the cursor

      on it.

      3. Menu 'Goto' -> 'Status control'

      4. Scroll to the system status 'I1700 CRTE Created', set the flag

      'Ini'. Save it.

      Please check the setting in other systems, if it is needed, please

      transport the change to the involved systems.

      Please let me know if this solves your problem of the initiative template creation.

      for the resources on the project template, please implement SAP Note : 1550571

      Kind Regards,

      Ihsaan Mayet
