Error message when you try to approve a timesheet that does not contain a project in Project Time and Expense for Business Portal 3.0: "Processing failed for 'timesheet #':"


Symptoms


When you try to approve a timesheet that does not contain a project in Project Time and Expense for Microsoft Business Solutions - Business Portal 3.0, you receive the following error message:
Processing failed for ‘timesheet #’:

Cause


This problem occurs if the AutomaticProcessing field has a value of 1 in the PmaTimesheetConfig table of the company database.

Note A value of 1 indicates that Business Portal should process the timesheet into the Timesheet Entry window in Microsoft Dynamics GP without processing the timesheet in Personal Data Keeper (PDK).

Workaround


To work around this problem, update the AutomaticProcessing field in the PmaTimeSheetConfig table. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Make a full backup of the company database.
  2. Click Start, click All Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server, and then click Query Analyzer.
  3. In the query pane, type the following query.
    Update PmaTimesheetConfig set AutomaticProcessing = 0
  4. On the Query menu, click Execute.

Status
