Fix: When the Schedule Variance Percentage (SVP) earned value field becomes very large, an overflow condition occurs and prevents PWA project views from loading.
Fix: When you click the Export to Excel button to export data on pages such as from the Project Center, you receive the following error message:
Sorry, something went wrong. An unexpected error has occurred.
