Work Status error BPC NW 7.5


I am having some trouble with Work Status for BPC NW 7.5.

When trying to change status I always get same message: "Controlled by rule has been violated". I've tried with differente ussers and I am suer they have all rights necessary to change status but, there is no way.

Please help.

Thanks in advance,

    Work status concept in BPC is completely driven by the Owner/manager concept. Check whether you have required owner/manager assignment. Security is different from owner/manager assignment.

    Check BPC documentation for better understanding of the concept.

    We have already made all tasks related to Work Status:

    1. Configuring Work Status u2013 Like Unlocked, Submitted and Approved

    2. Enter the Owner property in dim Entity

    3. Configure the work status setting at the application level: Entity as owner, Time and Category "YES"

    4. Aplication Administration --> Define the hierarchy as H1. We have defined the hierarchy in Entity PANETH1 also

    But still didn't work... as we though it should. We have gone through the Admisnitration manual for BPC NW75 and check everything again. Everythign was correct. But, we checked all appendix also. There is where SAP explains how is all working. In some stage, BPC thogh we were the manager (because of the Entity hierarchy structure) but our Work status was not define for a Manager (because we don't need it). We made a try with everything in BOTH and is Working!!! Cool.

    We are going to adjust everythign to our requirements now. But, we now itiis working correctly.

    Thank you very much for you help.
